the type of turbo you have can be found ,by going to a volvo dealer just give your reg number and they will tell you,but you will find the turbo boast diaphragm will have a stronger spring ,i think in your country they may call it a bypass valve.

Low pressure turbos have a higher engine compression which means they require less turbo pressure to attain the same power.

A LPT engine can produce as much torque as a HPT without using as many PSI.
