Default Changing spark plugs in an 01 S80 - How to Video

I thought i'd post a short video on how to replace the spark plugs in a 2001 S80 2.9.

Personally i recommend to only use the multi-prong Volvo plugs as single electrode plugs run didn't work well for me. During the first 10-15 seconds after starting when very cold the car would run rough, seems better with the multi-prong ones. I'm guessing Volvo used these for a reason.

I'm guessing opinions will start a holy war, but that's been my experience.

so... did it run better for the first 10 or 15 seconds with the Volvo plugs?

also, is this a turbo motor?
