    180 or 225?

    now guys, my pal has just got a TT 225, or so he thinks. i have driven it and my S3 hammers it. there is just no pull in it at all, i thought it would be the same if not quicker than my S3? we think it could be a 180 and not 225, if so, how can you tell them apart?
    cheers!

    I think the 180's had the inlet manifold pipe facing the drivers side and the 225's face passengers as in the S3.

    Easy to tell, the 225 BHP has twin exhausts (1 at either side), the 180 only has a single.

    ok, well if thts the case, with the twin exhaust, then its a 225. there must be something wrong with it because it just doesnt pull at all, we took both cars out and i was over taking him with ease!!!

    just post the vin. You can tell straight away then. If it's a 180 it'll have AUQ in the Vin

    another way is to tell from the engine bay - looking at it the 225 has the charge pipe like the s3 while the 180 doesn't.
    also if the 180 didn't have xenon option, it won't have front washer jets for lamps.

    if it is a 225 and running bad, maybe it's been left with a revo trial map, known that it's not as good as oem map
