    hit 'remap', 'A3'

    then you will see another screen with engine types

    the 180s 2000-present were VVTs which IIRC your is a 2000 model?

    hmmmm... if that's true the quattros were all made 2000 and onwards, never knew that!

    Re: VVT or not

    s3's came in 3 engine codes;
    APY;first cars all 210bhp
    AMK;Overlapped with 210bhp
    BAM;final engine code with 225bhp
    I have a apy and i have the original brochure that came with the car it has VVT although it's mechanical rather than the later cars which is electrically operated for purely emmission reasons.hope that helps.

    Re: VVT or not

    this information seems incorrect as my apy engine has vvt as stated in the brochure for 1999.They don't seem too know what port the head is either??

    Now you mention it, even the AGU info is wrong as this engine type has an internal water pump.

    I think I'll email him about it.

    Oh, well.

    Re: VVT or not

    Mine is an ARY as well, James. There was a thread on the briskoda forum that said ARY was non-VVT, but then there's nothing to say they're right!

    Must be easy enough to look for the VVT solenoid connection? IIRC from my Golf Haynes manual, the VVT is actuated by moving a solenoid up underneath the chain (?) connecting the two cams together, to change their opening times relative to each other... Hmm, doesn't make sense now I think about it! Anyone got a Haynes manual handy?
