    Default 10 or 15 hp? Please help identifying

    Hi,

    I have an outboarder Johnsson GT, with a sign saying it's a J10TEGTSSS. That would make it a Johnsson (J), 10 hp (10), tiller steered (T), electical started (E) engine from 2000 (SS).

    Now, two questions:

    - what's the GTS that's left here?
    - the sign stated its serial-number, the manufaction 3/2000, it's power 11.2 kW (which is 15 hp's roughly) and it's mass, 34 kgs. I am confused, is this a 10- or 15 hp-engine?

    Thankful for any help!

    I understood that. But the sign as well states "Power: 11.2 kW", which is 15 hp.

    Thank you! Do you know anything about the other letters in the modells name? Is GT a good thing then, does it make it different from a regular one?
