C5 power output, incorrect BHP?

Post by Majanor »

Hi all, just pensioned of my C5 2008 Exclusive. It will become a doner car.
Its been replaced with a C5 Estate Exclusive 2013 and here i seem to have a problem.
On return of Tax book I noticed BHP listed as 163, I never seen previous log book as dealer sorted out the paperwork. Previously I have had a log book returned after a change of address which had one digit missing !
Original Warranty Certificate Dealer had Filled in states 150 BHP and I was lead to believe it was, car definitely does not pull caravan as well previous car, 163 BHP.
So VIN is VF7**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff]

Help in finding out BHP appreciated as 150 will be cheaper to insure in these times of rising costs
Many thanks, Norman.

I'm sure someone will give you the exact spec based on your VIN but from what I have read, all 2.0L HDi for the 2013 model were 163bhp. But I may be wrong (it has been known LOL)

They are incorrect. Only the DW10FD engines are 150 Bhp!

You have the DW10CTED4 FAP engine 163 BHP (POWER 120 KW 340 NM) Euro 5. Make sure you get that changed ASAP.

Appreciate the input. Log book appears to be correct then at 163
I had been led to believe 150 BHP was a detuned 163, same turbo and injectors
Only couple of years in production.
So I would not go against your info
Indebted as always.

This is official info from your VIN, direct from Citroen's own database, which is why I asked for your VIN.

The DW engines are different variations and of course it's the associated and related attached systems that are considerably different too, including different engine management ECUs, sensors, mixers, and the list goes on, but for sure you have the DW10CTED4 163 variant. The DW10FD/C Euro 6 versions didn't come out until 2014 onwards.
