For you and T8fanning. No it's not one piece nor billet. but volvo does not use a head gasket on this engine they use an anaerobic sealant applied very thin. I'm pretty sure OEM parts are mostly forged internals in volvo's and cast block. The fact your trying to poke fun at me saying it doesn't have a head gasket, when it doesn't, makes me wonder why your even here.

Why did I put a head gasket on my 850?

Waste of $100

Didn`t read most of this thread. But this post made me LOL. I`m gonna have to go back and read it.

As an expert Volvo tech, I`m telling you, you`re wrong. There is a head gasket.

There is anaerobic sealant between the two halves of the cam cover though.

You should probably stop talking.

You guys have nearly convinced me to switch this around maybe drive the R I'm getting while I rebuild the 2.4t but keep it stock then upgrade the R instead once the 2.4t is back on the road. Would that appease you? question directed at everyone else not OVLOV since you just got here.

I'm trying not to pile on, because I've been right where you are, making posts on here that brought the TB fury down on me. But damn man, you're making it hard with posts like this! I better tell my local indie Volvo mechanic, who has been in business for 25+ years that all of the headgaskets he has done on whiteblocks are not needed. These motors are NOTORIOUS for overheating, warping heads, and needing resurfaced with a new (note I said new, not "first ever,") headgasket on reassembly. How do I know this? Experience, as I HAD a 850 with the T5 that warped the head from overheating.

Seriously, take some of the advice being offered here. Some of the old-guard around here can be rough on questions that they see as silly, uninformed, or outlandish. But, most of them know what they are talking about and, while maybe not being kind and gentle about it, are giving you good advice.

So, from my perspective you have two options: either build this monster of a project and prove everyone wrong, or start listening to some of the good advice you're being given.

As some added advice from being piled on a bit myself in the past here, if you're going to go ahead with your plans, just put your head down, start making progress, and then post up proof that you're doing it. Until then, all of the "bench racing" in the world is going to bring nothing to you but more of the same on here.

My two pennies. Keep the change.

Call it a gasket if you want but it's not one in the classic sense. Since I have to prove it go to 16:30 in the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6TL52R81V0&t=30s

It'll on sale through Sotheby's tomorrow, hoping to get a cool $50K for that rare piece of history!

I will then give the money to the OP to finance half of what it'll cost for his project.

OP delivers. I'm 100% convinced. Looks like I'm doing a stage 3 head gasket delete on my 240.

It'll bump the compression ratio and you'll get a mad boost in torque, yo! ;)

Spewl it did not.

Besides it was a Chevy LUV, and the new owner is still emailing him for the dash he ripped out in tiny pieces with a death wheel.
