OK, so is the S the 12v 3.0 164? Think 200 hp is about what the series 1, 12v, Cloverleaf had in Europe. For the series 2, 24v, 3.0 engines it was 211 for the standard and 230 for the Cloverleaf, the extra power being felt above 4,000 rpm thanks to the larger inlet runner giving better breathing.

The S was equipped with the 12 valve 3.0 litre V6 as were the base and L models. In North America the 24 valve 3.0 litre V6 received the LS badge.

S = 12V 164 Q(cloverleaf elsewhere)
L/B = Lusso 12V/Base
LS = 24V engine or SUPER elsewhere, 39mm intake runners
Q = 24V engine or QV/Q/Quad whatever. 45mm intake runners different bumper system


As far as the boss's wife's uncle's father's car, If it is an S engine, then it was replaced. Highly doubtful it came from the factory like this. Check engine code.

I mean based on what he posted this is second hand SOTP feel from his wife. And again these cars are at best 24 years old (in this case its more like 29), so who knows if a PO made some changes (chip or other mods) or his car is a little tired, or his wife just doesn't know what shes talking about. Especially that its a 10 hp difference.

Huge speculation thats theres a different engine in there.
