Guys with the compliancing ive been requested to provide maximum factory power hp option engine for lx/lx torana including ss slr l34 and a9x. Whichever the highest is i need that figure to provide and the reference source to provide to the engineer for lb1 or lb2 compliancing basically i need to work out if my engines ho is within 20% of max factory option. I believe it is at this point.....

Going to be tough nailing down the performance of the L34 option, you could get a high out put option package which took them to just over 300 horses. You'll get many varied reference sources on that one because they were from the dealer but a Holden part.

Theres a few gurus out there...but while we wait...wasnt 240hp the number.. even for L34s? And I thought the L34 HO was specifically identified as not for road use as it didnt meet pollution rules.
Maybe at 10hp more for LX.
Like I said...wait for the gurus.

Lx was the lowest.
L34 the highest, like previously said, the l34 high output is the one, if you can find an actual number.

Wasn't the A9X just the same as the SS engine spec? L34 had the good breathing engine that made the berries. I thought the HO versions were 280hp and the normal l34 about 240hp, but thats just from reading shyte in old magazines through the years- doesnt make it correct.

Early LX SS 5L and SLR5000 were 250hp. Cheers Aaron.

Holden homologated the hot engine for racing for torana with the LH, so there was no need to fit the hot engine to the a9x.
