Re: Volvo XC90 vs BMW X5

That is kinda hard question to answer. I have a neighbor that drives X5 and they seems to be happy with it. Keep in mind it is all brand new. First thing that came from my mind is that BMW has diesel engines and they are more economical. Body structure and safety I will go with Volvo without thinkin...

Re: Intake manifold gasket. RTV? Surface damage on head.

Hello there and do not worry. Just make it smooth and even with fine sand paper and you are good to go. This is nothing. Use regular gasket from Volvo or Victor R.
One more thing - do not ever put RTV on the intake or exhaust. It`s very bad idea. Intake could suck some pieces.
