    Mostly just the turbo and the ECU mapping iirc. Quite a rare combination FWD and 190 BHP

    might also be worth checking if the clutches are vastly different... I know that's the biggest prob on the lower spec 1.9TDI's

    190's don't have a K04 turbo it's a K03 but I understand it may be different to the K03 on the 163's as there are many variations of the K03. It has twin intercoolers as well which I don't think the 163's have.

    190's have a different spec K03 turbo refered to as a K03s and is the biggest K03 out of all the K03's ever made.

    190's also have bigger injectors and a duel side maount intercooler.

    wow! pretty pictures!!

    cool - that explains the ducting on the honeycomb grills up the side ot the intercoolers... I'd assumed as much, but wanted to check :D

    edit: is that off vagcat.com?

    any idea on the cost of fitting the 190 injectors to the 160 version?

    Not got a clue on even sure what size they are but for you you may just want to jump straight to 380cc TT injectors.

    wonder why they would make twin exit and twin entry SMIC's?
    seems more pipes than required
