But you have a non-quattro. The 80 quattro circa 1988-1991 has the
130hp 2.3L 5-cylinder engine, which is the same as the 1988-1990
90 quattro. The 1991-92 90 quattro got the 20V head and 164hp.
The 1988-1990 80 (non-quattro) has the 2.0L 108hp 4-cylinder,
but the 1991-92 80 (non-quattro) has the 130hp 2.3L five. The 1988-1990
90 (non-quattro automatic) had the 108hp 2.0L four.
These are referring to the U.S. models. Of course, Canadian and
European models differ.
