Headgasket Choice

Volvo Parts talk... Which brands are bad, which are good? What Volvo part NEEDS to be OEM? What can we "cheat" on to save some money? OEM = "Original Equipment Manufacturer".

What is the choice of techs for gasket companies when servicing the s70 non turbo. It appears that Victor is the oem, but there is fel-pro, beck arnley,and world pac and a company I found called Elwis? All comments and opinions welcome.

The gasket that came in my Fel Pro set (which was the least expensive via Rock Auto) for my 850R was a German "Goetze " brand, which seems to be the Porsche guy's favorite...
