    Help Solve an Argument!!! Z20LET q's

    What is the output of the Z20LET in the following cars?

    Coupe Turbo..
    GSi Turbo..
    SRi Turbo..

    I am 100% positive that they Are 197bhp and 184 lb/ft of torque in all three as the engines are the same and there is no difference!!!

    if i remember from here...the sri-turbo has a different mapping and was "allegedly" lower bhp according to mr vx, however in reality they were all the same power, around 200bhp

    These books are sketchy on BHP and i dont believe them (RR or a proper Dyno is more reliable :roll: )

    I hear the standard specs for all 3 are very close to 200bhp. obviousley there will be a slight difference as every car cannot be perfectley the same.

    When I got mine, it was rated at 189bhp, but on Regals rollers in standard form, it returned 210 bhp and 204ft/lbs

    The GSi is rated at the slightly higher ouput but at 200 rpm higher, bit of a no brainer there as most engines should produce more power if consuming more fuel

    Outputs vary vastly from one car to another so the rated figures are pretty worthless

    888 was rated at 189 .......how wrong they are

    But testing has shown that they vary car to car - hey Scotty?
