You could try calling PT Engine up this way. They deal almost exclusively with Volvo. 207-324-1019. Try to ask for Phil JR. Phil SR will keep you on the phone forever.

i can't give you an opinion, never worked on one or ran one.

however the quick google search revealed that the truckers seem to like them quite well, with one of the major fails being EGR.

good luck wish i could point you in a direction

I had the 122p, same block as the d12. Had great luck with that engine and everything was very easy to work on. A friend of mine runs a d12 and loves it, puts 500plus ours a year on it.
