    AVJ 163bhp?????

    Having recently bought an Audi that was sold as a '2002 A4 1.8T 163bhp Quattro sport' I'm puzzled as when I do research (going to get it mapped) all specification tables come back with the AVJ engine at 150bhp?? Ive looked at official and not so official sites and they come back with the AVJ producing 150bhp from 2000 onwards, the 163bhp is a different code.? Its not a huge problem but after reading some other threads there are other people quoting they have 163bhp models with AVJ engines???

    Can someone clear this up for me pls??

    Cheers

    My old AVJ was 150 but Juss's was 163 so I assume they must have done both.

    Thanks for the reply's, I must say all the info points towards there never being a 163bhp AVJ engine. There is not one piece of info/spec that says there were two different spec engines produced, only the 150 bhp AVJ. Even more reason for me to get it mapped as I'm down 13 horses!

    Cheers.

    What does the sticker in your service book or in the spare wheel well say your power output is in KW?? The 163bhp will be 120KW & the 150bhp will be 110KW, it'll also give you the 3 letter designation of your engine and stop all your confusion!!

    There was no AVJ with 163hp. It must have been a misprint or sth.

    I have wondered this for years, mine is the 150bhp AVJ 1.8TQ, but no insurance shows it at 150, neither does the DVLA which lists mine as 163 so you pay the higher tax band as IIRC the 150bhp Audi goes under the band for top rate tax

    So we are paying insurance and tax on a 163 car but actually own a 150
    And how is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive?
