I have a 2014 turbo 1.8L beetle and I am looking to do some upgrades on it but I can not seam to find places that sell parts for the beetle.

I want to upgrade the exhaust and the air intake any Ideas?

You might check with the usual suspects (borla, magnaflow, petty motorsports, 42 draft designs, etc); most seem to have the 2.0T dual rear exit exhaust systems, i'm assuming the 1.8T is a single rear exit exhaust?

Yes it’s a single I would like a double though. I want to go with a rally style build.
But the 2.0 will fit the 1.8L?

Good question; you probably need to research things and may need a new bumper from the 2.0T models, for the dual or modify what your current bumper you have? If the previous generation new beetles are any i indication of compatibility; many beetle, and golf exhaust systems were similar or need slight changes to work. I would contact the various exhaust system companies and see what they say; those around here, that upgraded their exhaust systems were 2.0T engines with pre existing dual exhausts (cat back). You might pose this question, on the vwvortex beetle forum; as many owners, have heavilly modded their Beetles there and someone may have done this to the non 2.0T Beetles.

What are you looking for?

What are you looking for?
More noise? More power? Both?

I cant personally vouch for any fitment issues between the 2.0 and the 1.8, but I can say that EVERY aftermarket company out there does not think highly of the beetle.

There ARE some that actually care to do some Research and development, but on a personal point, I can't TELL you how much money I"ve spent TRYING to make stuff off a GOlF, or GTI, or passat, or jetta work, just to SEE if it would.

Do lots and lots of research.

Good luck. have fun.
