Does Anybody Know When The New 1.8T Beetles Changed Valves Or Are They All 20v Cause Some Sites Say That 1998 And Up To 2000 Where Only 5v Engines. I Have 2000 I Hope Its 20v. And They Say That The 2001's Have More Boost THEN THE 2000'S Is That True
20V and 5V mean the same thing. 20 is the number of valves total. 5 is the number of valves per cylinder.
The 2000 and earlier APH model engine does not have less boost. They develop the exact same power as the 2001+ turbo models. The difference lies in the smaller turbocharger and injectors, which prevent the APH from achieving the same performance when "chipped" as the newer AWV model.
The Turbo S has higher boost and develops up to 180HP. It is the same engine code as the GTI/Jetta: AWP.
Even Germans do not capitalize every word in a sentence.
