If its a 1.8, its a turbo. Is it a 2.0L engine?

The 2.0 wasn't designed for speed so its not very cost effective to get speed out of it. The only real way to get any power out of it is to add a turbo or supercharger. And those options aren't that cheap. If you want a fast car, I'd say you're better off selling the 2.0 car and buying a 1.8T or a newer Beetle with the 2.0T.
