Currently there are five different engines to chose from (some of them are not availiable on all markets): 2.0 injection (normally aspirated) 130 hp 2.0 LPT (low pressure turbo) 154 hp 2.0 T ('standard' output turbo) 185 hp 2.0 HOT (high output turbo) 200 hp, which will be 205 hp from MY00 (LEV approved) and badged Aero in Europe. As I understand the HOT engine in standard if you buy the SE package in the US? 2.3 HOT 225 hp in Viggen, will be 230 from MY00 (LEV, low emission vehicle according to Calif. standards) Anders
