1999 Volvo S80 – Drove Through Water

I am ashamed to admit this but I drove my wonderful 1999 Volvo S80-V6-Turbo thru a flooded road. The water wasn’t that high but I got nervous and stepped on the gas and sucked water into the intake. It made it thru water, then stalled, I tried to start and wont turn over. Towed it home and a friend tore engine down and there was water in 4 of 6 plugs and large amount of water in oil pan.
