I don't think a chip or program is going to do anything for the 2.0L engine. The exhaust will make it sound a lot louder and with an open air intake you will hear the engine more but as far as "Real" world Horsepower goes you will see very little with add on mods on the 2.0that is what i was afraid of im already in the process of doing a twin turbo on my truck so i didn't want to do it to this one. oh well guess its just going to be an exhaust custom cold air and a programmer/chip(if i can find on)
there is plenty to do to the 2.0l, I had a 99 2.0 and that thing was qwick. do the magnaflow cat back exhaust, good choice, I hade one. I also reccomend the K&N 57i kit. do your homework and you can do alot to this engine. I was gearing up for a naturally aspirated build on mine when I had to get ride of it. techtonics tunign does a giac chip and unitronic will most likely build you a custom tune to accompany your mods and what you want to get out of the car.hey guys new to the forum and first time working on a beetle. i have a 1998 2.0L beetle which im looking at getting some more power out of it.So far im looking at running a magnaflow exhaust and was wondering what other upgrades you guys recommend
Ditto, cheaper to sell the 2.0 and get a 1.8T instead. A lot of nice ones out there. Heck, mine might be up for sale in the beginning of the year. I am thinking about getting a slightly used 2012 2.0TSI. If I can get about $4000 for mine I can use that for a decent down payment and get the monthly payments down to around 200 bucks. We shall see.Why swap the engine when you could buy a 1.8T? An engine swap isn't going to be cheap.
