Well, I've decided to throw in the towel, suck it up and shell out the 8 grand for the new engine. I greatly appreciate everyone who took the time to share their thoughts with me on this matter.

What did you find out about the lifetime warranty? I'm sorry you're out so much money but if the warranty is good enough it could be a worthwhile investment.

I've requested a copy of it so I can dig into the details, but my understanding is that it covers pretty much everything except routine maintenance and anything caused by negligence on my part. The two things I'm most interested in clarifying are, 1) transferrability, and 2) whether it requires I have regular maintenance performed at the dealership as opposed to an independent certified Volvo shop.
