The SRi had the 20SEH engine which created 129 bhp, and 133 lb/ft, compared to the standard 2.0 20NE creating 115bhp, and 129 lb/ft.
If it has a catalyst you lose a little bit, but you're only talking 2 bhp or so.
look to the right (nearest 2 yourself) edge of the engine block, above the dipstick, you will either see "20SEH" amongst other numbers on there which means you have the 130bhp high-cpmression engine or "20NE" which means you have the catalysed 115bhp low-compression engine!

Thats odd. I used to have a k92 pre facelift with a cat and it had the 20seh.
I must admit, I initially thought I had the c20ne which is what I was told, and I nearly sold the car too until I looked at the engine and saw it was an seh.
A friend has a post facelift L93 sri and it definatly has the 115 engine, but interestingly, it also seems to have the wide ratio gearbox which really kills any performance and makes the sri badge a bit silly. Honestly the two cars are like chalk and cheese and I don`t blame the chap for selling, especially if he doesn`t have the CR gearbox.
2.0 8v cdi, gli, li are all 115bhp and the SRi has 130bhp, cos it has a close ratio gearbox, compared to the others, otherwise i judged that all the 2.08v engines are about the same. CAT normally reduces by 5BHP
Hmmmm, have I got a dodgy Cav then? I've drove a Cav SRi with 20SEH and to tell the truth I cant see the difference. But my engine definately has C20NE stamped on the f***er. My dads a mechanic and he's drove loads of SRi's and he says mine isnt no different.
Even in the car manual, the kw is 85 which works out at 115bhp. What on earth is going on? I'm gutted.
