    Anyone have a cross reference for the 512TR thermostats?
    Ricambi has them for $162 for two. I'll reuse the old ones before paying $81 each.
    Thanks.

    don´t know just now if they are the same as in the testarossa?
    but for this you can use BMW thermostats, but also don´t know just now from what serie?
    you may take one form your car and go to a BMW dealer, show it to an older mechanic. may be he just can tell you?

    Ferrari now sells a superceded part number for the 512TR and many others. They are now $106 each! Gotta love the F-Pimp as my friend Shamile would say.
    The only markings on the thermostats are "82J2".

    I searched the Cross Reference thread and found mention by Melvok that Opel and Valeo thermostats would fit, but no part numbers. I have sent him a PM.

    The problem with my TR was. It never got above 195, but on the hi-way the temp would go down. Thermostats not closing.

    When I try the Rock Auto site, there are many thermostats listed for these Volvos, but none look like mine.

    OK, maybe 512TR is different.
