Ok. But power didn't change in non turbo engine too. I had Coupe 2.2
,now i
have 2.3 and the power is same 100KW(136bph)

When I asked this question a couple of months ago, referring to my 82
100 2144cc having 136Bhp and a new 2.3(i think) also having 136Bhp, Paul
Henegan explained it to me.

Basically the more modern engines have more torque, and the power is
spread move over the the rev range, so there is more low and mid range
power than the older and smaller engines.

Also, I think it has something to do with German taxes/insurance prices.
 Perhaps the category that the car is in is less than 137Bhp.
