Is it a Vortech blower? Also, how much power does the M40 engine produce? When was it made?

Don't have a clue about the blower but the engine was produced
between 1988-1994.

The specs are :

There seems to be 2 variations, one is
B16 1.6l

POWER 75/5000 kW/rpm
TORQUE 143/4250 nM/rpm


the other one is
B18 1.8l
POWER 85/5500 kW/rpm
TORQUE 165/4250 nM/rpm

I don't think this engine was ever imported into US/Canada.

I have no clue how to convert the numbers to HP / lb/ft
