The factory dyno results for the engine are at 160 hp and 148 ft-lb of torque on 87 octane fuel in the U.S., however for Austrailia the same 2.0L GDI engine is dyno rated on 95 RON fuel (95 RON is about 90-91 AKI octane in the u.s.) is rated at 125 kW or 167 hp on the fuel we would know as either upper midrange, or premium (90-91 AKI).

Therefore the gain is theoretically about 7 hp at the crankshaft of the engine.
