What year is the car? In 1999; there were three engines available:

2.0l normally aspirated gas
1.8 turbo gas
1.9l turbo diesel

Unless; your friend added a aftermarket turbo or supercharger to the 2.0l, it was the base normally aspirated engine Volkswagen, offered at the time.

There is a 2.0l turbo on the latest version of the beetle .

If you can get the vin # you can decode it and figure out what new beetle you are checking out:
