Source of engines and a question

Are there any other sources for Opel motors in the united states besides opel gt source? And does anyone know what the Horsepower ratings on the 2.0L, 2.2L, and the 2.4L motors that they sale are?


Thanx

Ahh, this is exactly the reason behind my wanting an FAQ section.....

A 2. 0 litre CIH engine is rated at 110 ps, the 2.2 litre is rated at 115 ps, and the 2.4 litre is rated at 128 ps. PS is the metric rating for horsepower, and one ps is roughly equal to .98 hp. So a 2.4 litre would make about 125 hp. Now this is assuming the standard 2.4 head is retained, the injection system, the larger exhaust manifold, and exhaust pipe. Most US Opel owners end up using a 2.0 head, a downdraft manifold and carburetor, and a Sprint exhaust manifold, and end up at about 105-110 hp, with far greater torque than a 1.9 has.
