Re: What HP does a HT code 86 GTI engine have? (Bobcdn)

One hundred horsepower.
Five more are waiting to be unleashed if you'll change out that single outlet exhaust manifold and downpipe.

Re: What HP does a HT code 86 GTI engine have? (vwpat)

Thanks for the info... Turns out vwpat was right, the engine is a RD with the 102hp. I am going to pick it up this week as well as a dual outlet manifold (I hope).
This all came about after my headgasket gave out Saturday night. It was inevitable though. When I bought the car (86 4-door Golf) I changed out the coolant and it was a milky brown colour! So I imagine that it did some damage while it was in there. Thats why I decide to replace the whole engine and not just the head gasket.
Thanks again guys. Bob.
