the US VR6 (AAA) Engine has ranged in reported hp, depending on the car it is in
the Corrado SLC says 178 hp
I have seen 172 hp and 174 hp on the mkIII VR6

I'm no expert, but from what I've gathered from hangin out on the Corrado Forum is that the Corrado gets a little more HP via the higher flowing Cat. Corrado also has a 4 bar FPR instead of the 3 bar which may also contribute to the xtra HP. The final drive ratio is also lower than other cars, although I don't think that would influence Dyno numbers a little, would it? Anyways I think that sums it all up. O yeah i'm sure you know too that some Euro Corrados are 2.9L. Not sure if that is still considered a AAA.

when you buy a vr6 motor from the dealer (AAA code for a MKIII or corrado) you get a 2.9 straight from VW too!
