The Holden red 130 is for Asian laws I believe, as anything over 2.2L comes more rego tax at the time and 138 goes just over 2.2L I think and maybe when we got the big grey 138, Asia only got a 132.5ci version maybe ?

The reason for a 130 red comes across as just a stupid thing to do otherwise.

But come to think of it a 0.060 over 138 is a 144 and most likely a 130 would go out to a 144 I would think, oh the power haha !

Yes, 130 was to stay under Asian 2.2 or 2.25L. Rego jumped massively after that. This was for Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia etc.

It changed to 2.5L during HJ as the 130 was replaced by the 138 during HJ. When I was in Malaysia about 5-6 years ago all their D4D Toyota engines were 2.5L for the same reason. This is why I think all the Nissan and Mitsubishi hand grenades are 2.5L and below now.
If we all had the same (good) taste, who would buy all the Fords?
