    Default 206gti s3 power

    OK i have only found that the HP of the s3 to be 130hp
    This makes the kw at 96/97 although the specs in aus say 90kw
    What is the true hp and kw of the s3?

    Its 122 HP and 90KW. I think this is because of the cat. The Overseas models were 130hp because if no cat etc.

    sweet thanks just what i was asking.
    Also how much for the conversion? and what will u gain...
    Have been just inquisitively looking at the turbo option, how would this be possible with the space under the bonnet?
    Remove the AC (which ran out on me last month in stinking heat)?

    around 1990 in the uk, you had the option of purchasing a cat equipped 1.9 205gti (122bhp), and the non-cat 1.9 205gti (130bhp).

    later u.k. 1.9 205gtis were exclusively cat equipped and are obviously the same spec as our oz landed 205gti s3s.

    S3 to 130hp conversion is a waste of money. You'd be better off spending the money on working the head and fitting a bigger cam (insert PeterT).

    The 122hp engine is every bit as quick as the 130, with a wider spread of torque, nearly the same peak figures, and better engine management.
