My handbook for the 1990 model year states the Max HP to be 175 for non-cat 9000 2.0T. I have seen some websites that say it is 185 however. What is the true figure for my car, which is on a G plate, so early 1990 I think.

P.S. Still not sorted my outside temperature display, it just says F2 on the DCC/trip meter display. Is the outside temp sender unit cream crackered or the DCC itself at fault?

Nah Kev, the 1990 Carly was 195bhp. Der rundown..

Full Pressure Turbos (T16's DI/APC)

1985-88 1985cc Oil-cooled turbo, 175bhp
1989-90 1985cc Water-cooled turbo, 185bhp
1990-92 2290cc Water-cooled turbo, 200bhp

Carlsson Turbo's

1988-89 1985cc T16, 206bhp
1990 1985cc T16, 195bhp
1991 2290cc Turbo, 220bhp
1992 2290cc CS Turbo, 220bhp


1985cc LPT 150bhp
2290cc LPT 170bhp
2290cc FPT 200bhp
2290cc Aero 225bhp

I will stand to be corrected.

The 1990 and 1991 cars had a smaller turbo than the 1988/89 cars. Also I think all 88/89 cars were MY89, although I can't confirm this.

And they all look like the dogs doodahs, except in white.
