Model / Years/ Chassis # / Engine #/ Power/ Top Speed
190E 2.3 84 201.024 102.961 131hp (98kw) 123 mph
190E 2.3 85-86 201.024 102.985 131hp (98kw) 123 mph
I can tell you right away that the info on the '84 is wrong. In '84 the 2.3 had 8:1 compression ration which was bumped to 9:1 in 1985 and the HP went from 120 or so to 130.
