    How can i tell whether my A4 1.8T is a 163bhp or a 190bhp? Is there any markings or physical differences?
    Thanks ..Lee

    Off the top of my head a red "T" and the correct PS figure on the vehicles data sticker.

    There are 3 types of 1.8T, originally there was a 150 bhp and a 163 bhp, Audi then changed the 150 bhp's to 163 and some of the 163's to the 190 Red T.

    The main way is for the 190's is dual side mounted intercoolers, and the RED T on the rear and on the engine cover, it will also say on the V5 what bhp your 1.8T is. The 190's also have 312mm brakes but think other models might also have these.

    Only way to tell is to get the engine code which is stamped into the top of the block near to the timing belts.

    right, finally taken a look. On the spec sticker it says 110kw, what does this equate to in bhp?
    What differences are there between the different bhp models to give them the extra bhp? Think i'll get a remap for now and then keep an eye out for some go faster parts. Am i right in thinking a ko4 will bolt on without too much trauma?
    thanks ..lee

    Have you had a good test drive of the car? . A remap may give you 20-30 bhp

    110KW is 147Bhp. There were subtle changes to the engines if the A4s followed the same development path as the rest of the VAG range. I would strongly suspect that these used the standard K03 turbo rather than the modified version fitted to the AUQ engine which went into the TT and Leon Cupra. Although both turbos same size, they use different shafts and fins to generate more flow on the K03s (not its official name but it is more commonly called this).
    If this engine is a non drive by wire similar to that fitted to the Golf 1.8T then it will not have VVT and so will be limited to about 196bhp on a remap. The later engines with drive by wire, VVT and K03s are good for 215 from a standard remap.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Matt, that info is very useful, thats nearly 50 bhp from a remap alone or will it need the supporting decat, exhaust air filter etc? Very interested in finding out more about tuning these cars. ill take a look in the morning to see if its FBW throttle

    No need to change the standard air filter as the standard air filter and air box are good for all supporting mods

    thanks for that, thought as much. When i bought my a6 4.2 someone had put a stupid induction kit on it. First thing i did was buy a standard airbox

    And another of the a4, sorry about the pics they are iphone. Been busy colour coding all the ugly grey trim this weekend and fitting the mercedes turbine alloys. Not sure whether they suit the shape or not yet so will probably
    change them shortly

    Mine is LY5K. Brilliant Blue.

    It's actually not a bad colour, but beggars can't be choosers I'm afraid.........

    Quantum Performance Engineering - All these engine codes! Can you explain what they mean?

    heres a list of 1.8t engine codes and power outputs. also lists what car and year they where fitted into. Its very basic but gives you an idea of whats about.
