if its manual It'll always be up on kws compared to autos.
For a stocko youd be looking at around 110-120rwkw, depending on kms and condition. (manual)
Add good extractors and a full 2.5" mandrel bent zorst you'd add bout 10 or so rwkw to that.

Alot of cars can vary depending on how well they are maintained and other underlying factors.

standard engine has pretty good low down torque, great for towing. dont worry about power figures too much if you want to just tow stuff to the track. Mines on LPG and still spins the wheels at the lights taking off and mines done a few kays LOL and its still the original engine... 180k just run in LOL
