As an FYI, I found a link at http://new.volvocars.com/ownersdocs/199 ... 70_133.htm

that says the 87 degree thermostats are for turbo cars and the 90 degree ones are for NA cars.
The Haynes manual for 1996 to 1999 cars mentions Type l cars are 87 degrees and Type ll are 90 degrees.
I couldn't find any mention of 92 degree thermostats excpet on various parts sites.

Hope this helps,

87c for turbo ... Think most listings actually show for the NA.

Wisdom requires knowledge as a prerequisite, but knowledge can be developed due to a lack of wisdom.
In order to learn how to fix something, you must first learn how to break it.
