    VCDS will tell you the ECU number when you go to the engine module.... that will enable the numerous tuners that have already sorta answered your question to confirm for sure..

    just log blocks 025 and come back to me with the reading and ecu number an i will tell you if its mapped or not.

    You dont have blocks 115 on your ecu.

    also would i have to red line it through 3rd gear like it did with the bhp output mas air flow reading??? is 137.6 about right for 155k 1.8t?

    lol still do you think 137.6 is a decent output for a high mileage 1.8t? or is that figure not going to be 100% from vagcom?

    137.6/0.8=172 bhp (rule of thumb)

    yea its ment to be or 148 bhp according to wikipedia, the figures from vagcom say 110.14 at 5760 rpm in 3rd gear! maybe il try it again and then a 4th gear run to compare the difference but then again it has 155k on the clock, iv heard these engines dont really lose power tho?
