Yes, 5 valves per cylinder. Also this is an interference engine, so if the timing belt brakes, you'll have major repairs. How many miles on the car? Timing belt is a maintenance item that needs to be replaced every 60k miles or if it is old (heat cycling). I would look into getting the timing belt, waterpump and tensioners replaced for piece of mind.

My friend it is a 1.8T.
Search for engine code :) mine is APH which has smaller fuel pump and need to be replaced with a bigger one.

I'm modifying my car. If you need any assistance, I would like to help.
