we winterize many Volvo 8.1s. We hook a tank up to earmuffs, place the earmuffs on the water pickups on the drive and run the engine until the antifreeze comes out at a good freeze protection level...then fog the engine

An MPI engine shouldn't be fogged, run it on treated fuel, as per an earlier post, while running antifreeze through it as stated above and just shut it off when the antifreeze comes out at proper protection level.

pgray,
you really should be asking winterizing questions on the "Winterizing" forum.

Engine winterizing has nothing to do with the brand of boat that the engine sits in. Volvo's are available in a number of boat brands and really, as far as winterizing goes, Volvo's really aren't any different from Merc's or Crusader's.
The biggest difference in winterizing engines is whether the engine is FWC or RWC.

A Volvo engine is a Volvo engine and it doesn't matter whether it is in a Chap, Stingray or whatever other brands offer Volvo's.
I really don't think there is any difference in "setup" from one boat to another.

Why not get a Volvo manual, and learn the 'right' way the first time, the manual will pay for itself with one winterization.
