They are all 2.3s with 170hp, 200hp or 225hp for the turbos. I thik the non-turbos had 130 then maybe upped to 150 for the late ones. No torque though! But there is more than just the engine that is different between an Aero and an lpt car. The Aero has big-bolstered sport seats front and rear and a much stiffer suspension with larger wheels and tires. Also has a different body kit with a bigger front air dam, side skirts and a trunk lid spoiler. More interior luxury toys as well, though I think you could get all that stuff as an option on the base cars too. Kevin Rhodes Westbrook, Maine, USA '00 9-5 SE V6t Wagon (200hp) '92 C900CVT (160hp)
