North American spec cars for 1998:<p>LPT Convertible - Auto Only<br>HPT Coupe - Manual/Auto<p>An easy way to distinguish the 98's from the later models is the small Volvo logo located just in front of the doors. European spec 98's and later models have a turn signal light. Also the Volvo badge on the grille is black and silver rather than blue and silver.<p><IMG SRC="http://www.saint.org/convertible/c70_blue_big.jpg" BORDER="0">

Don't trust that all people will tell you the correct engine size, but it's on the timing cover if you look in there. It'll say B5<b>23</b>4T or B5<b>24</b>4T. The 23 and 24 are the engine size.

Actually I meant, what are the physical differences btw LPT and HPT other than displacement. Such as bore and stroke, head design, piston/rods/crank design, intake etc, etc, etc. I know it's been discussed before, but I never paid much attention, cuz I have a 2.3L HPT....time to start reading / searching

J: come on, you can lower the compression, while you add displacement.....and vice versa

Re: (C70drvr)

I Thought That The Coupes Were Only HPT?<br>The Turbos Between The HPT and LPT ARE Different.
