I figured the size of the engine would be written on the engine, but I believe it was a 283 cdi engine, but not sure about the hp...

Read your original thread about this car and you'll find half of your answer. Search (and think) is a wonderful thing.

You're half right, would you like to try to improve on that?

Hi VWHOBO, Well you are makeing me have to dig up my old book ,not that I mind ,was going from memory about the 230ci , because back in those days I had one with a six for about a day ,went to 327 in it after first day of owning it . Now they had a 194cu in an a 230 cu in six cly.194 was 120 hp an the 230 was 140 hp an it says there was a 230cu in with 155hp , so now if that doesn't answer the man's question to your sadisfaction ,OH Well . Have a great day Slimone
