For starters, the 230 HP TYPE II engine was intoduced in 1993 on the Coupes. Also, the 230HP engine is only available on the Coupes, and on the 94-95 GS Legend Sedan, not all the Legends.jedmund1 said:"the 1994-95 Legends have a 230 HP 3.2L V-6. It's not hard to free up the restrictive factory system to get close to 250 from them. just some Legend information for ya! "
I was at another forum and ran across this statement, Just wanted to know how true this statement is, I know that the HP numbers are correct but what about" freeing up the restrictive factory system" is it that easy to get an extra 20 hp and if so what steps do you have to take to get those gains. Thanks in advance
Other than that, getting an additional 20HP to the crank (the 230 is at the crank) is not that hard on a V6 with basic upgrades like exhaust, inatke and headers, chips, and so forth. The problem with the Legend is that there is only a very hard to get header from Japan, and a few custom headers being developed, but not available yet. So, pretty much no headers for the Legend that would yield the largest HP gain. Also, if you went to full port and polish route, 20 HP is very achievable.
