The 1992+ turbo cars have a different radiator and IC. Personally I would recommend all 7/9 upgrade to the larger Rad and IC along with the different IC hoses as it is a more efficient design and the larger Rad also helps. Plus OEM EFAN bolts right up so you can ditch the clutch fan.

Different how? Top mount or mid mount?

Mid mount IC so it has a smoother flow design along with a wider core for more surface area for cooling. In my car when I did the swap I noticed the difference.

If you Google "Volvo 940 intercooler" and look at pictures the links for the do88 ICs are there and you can see just the airflow path difference. Add in a larger rad and being able.to use the efan without any mods. If you find a junkyard car you can get all of the parts you need to update your older setup. The biggest issue you have to work around is placement of the air cooled oil cooler. Myself I ditched that and went to the 1992+ water cooled oil.cooler.

My IC is top mount on my 1997 model. But like I said, I don't have AC, so I believe that's the difference?

Yeah I don't know, it has no extra options fitted. No AC with completely manual heater control (no recirc button), no power windows / mirrors, nothing.

Less things that can get broken though.
