    Hello basically me and a mate have been having discussion about the a3 1.8 sport non turbo think it's the 125hp one basically the question is. Is the 1.8 sport the v5 engine or the same similar thing to the 1.6 got told they are v5
    also what's your opinions on the engine and please not comparing it to the 1.8t engine that I'm sure is the v5 :/ I might be talking **** but I'm willing to learn
    thanks Nick

    I think you mean 5v... v5 is a 5 cylinder (vee 5) engine vag did a while back for the Golf..

    Yes, your 1.8 is a 20v like the turbo engines... the 5v refers to 5 valves per cylinder... most people refer to these engines as 20v's though..

    The 1.6 is a 16 valve engine IIRC

    The AVU 1.6 is 8v.

    What's the point in doing an engine swap for 20hp? The 1.8 n/a isn't easy to tune nor is the 1.6. If you want more power just buy a 1.8t engine'd A3.

    Personally I think you should wait and just get a 1.8t - the 1.8 isn't really much of a step up in performance if that's what you're after. If you want a tidier car with not much more go then go for it!

    I think to my self I should keep my a3 for now till next March to insure a 1.8t.. But it's not for the power I know that it's just a lot better car than the one I got body work it's very straight only reason I asked about engine just to see if it a reliable engine and how good it is
