THP engine - Increase power

Post by lancia58 »

Hi

I have notice that although all THP engines seems to be same they have different max power depends on the car they are installed on. There are 140 hp , 150hp, 155hp, 165 hp, 178hp ( on Mini copper ) and the 308 GTI with 200hp. Is the difference in power is only different engine ECU ( i.e. engine management ) or there is more than this to increase the power of lower spec THP engine ?

Thanks
Zohar

There are also different size turbochargers and intercoolers, probably different manifolds.
