If you have your original A/C and it hasn't been modified then it's R12.
The factory didn't switch to R134A until 1995.

It you have your original engine then it's 115hp.  That's the way all
4KQs came.  The 130hp engine found its way into some 87 Coupe GTs,
and on the 80/90/100 in 1988.  Visually the 130hp engine can be
distinguished by the new-style intake manifold.
