Re: What do it mean???? (940GLE)

It looks as though the site in your link is referring to the 5 cylinder 2.5 litre turbocharged engine, which in R form produces (supposedly) 300hp. No one really refers to this engine as "R5", but I guess it would be an easy way to differentiate it from other volvo engines of similar displacement.

Not sure where that nomenclature came from. <p>The "R" engine is a B5254T4, and is based mostly on the B5254T2, a 2.5 liter, low pressure turbo engine. <p>There was a Renault R5, which was a very fun car in it's day. Matter of fact still is, if you can find one!
