Per LCT's service manual see page 3 it is 7.5hp which seems correct. The dealer saying 9hp was exaggerated.

I think it probably is closer to around 7 - 8 horsepower. This is compiling all the different threads I have read about conversions and the CC to horsepower ratings. Im not sure but if the engines use upgraded parts like ball bearings this could equate to better performance and horsepower.
