850R and 850 T5 is there any engine difference ? 850

Guys,

Is there any engine difference between 850R and 850-T5 production between 1995-97 both with auto transmission.
I read in "Wheels" 1996 - Australian edition that 850R has more linear torque curve due to "upgraded software in the engine management system" Is this true in case auto trans? Perhaps manual only? Is this true at all? Or it is just a Volvo claim to justify the higher price for the R. (apart of the 17" wheels, stiffer/lower suspension, bone leather, etc )
Is it true that when "R" accelerates there is almost no sensation(liner torque), where T5 is brutal and takes you by suprise when the turbo kicks off ?
Have you compared both ?

Cheers, SBA
