I would try to source parts from IPD or FCP Euro. If they do not have the parts you need, consider a Volvo dealer who discounts parts. There are several online. I would not want to do all the work and find I had purchased inferior parts at a cheap price.

I have found nothing positive about aftermarket parts..and wow holy crap..even a limited to rings and bearings overhaul is going to be way expensive..really blows something unassociated can be so costly..if it was not such a nice car I am not sure I would put another dime in it..still kinda chapped the frikkin alternator belt can scatter and engine..that is retarded..not sure I even want to risk the money..a brand new belt scattered in 10,000 miles..what is going to stop it from doing the same thing 2000 dollars later...IDK man..maybe I should just scrap it and put 2 grand in one of the old mopars.
