    Im pretty sure it means KW's.. If it was stock I'd say dont change it, but if you have 215 or more then why not

    the 215i badges came on the stroker motors... ie holdens 5.7ltr (not a gen 3) it would just fool people into thinkin it could be a stroker motor... why not just debadge the car? it would look cleaner
