    Can anybody tell me which engine corresponds to the engine code "S" (ninth character of VIN number) for a brand new Volvo V70?

    I understand that it is in fact characters 6 and 7 that identifies the engine type (and
    I got it identified).

    Sorry for the confusion.

    So what are characters 6 and 7 in your serial number? In the year of my
    V70 (1998) 53 is for B5234T3 (high pressure turbo in T5), 55 for B5254
    (non turbo), 56 for B5254T (low pressure turbo). The high pressure V70R
    had a different number because it was tuned slightly different.

    Replace tt with t (twice!) and remove parentheses to email me directly.
