My mate says that as far as he remembers it didn't get any performance mods from Tickford....just visuals. So it should have the regular 185kw engine.
So not sure why your dyno was so high. Was the 230ish you mentioned extrapolated from wheel reading to flywheel reading? E.g. My XR8 220 pulled 157 at the wheels, adding in the 30% loss typical means it would be 224kw at the fly.
May have been a generous dyno or may have factory freak engine...they sometimes slip through slightly better. Or maybe both.
Not sure.
I have asked him to look into it further.
