    which is best Mk4 2.0 gti or the Mk4 1.8 t gti

    Right looking for a Mk4 gti but not sure which model to buy we have been looking at the 2.0 litre and the 1.8 Turbo but unsure which is best. I'm sure every one has there own opinion but which is best on miles per gallon and which will be the best engine for milage as these cars are never low milage cars unless your very lucky and you have loads of money to spend. I am interested in a 1.8 turbo but it has done 140000 no survice history is that to high for that engine and a 2.0 litre with 169000 but with some history up to 87000. So any info would be most appreciated.
    cheers mark

    1.8T agu engine code is the best one
    2.0 gti and 1.8 gti to slow

    Mine is a 1999 1.8t agu which as the standard forged engine componets and as only done 86,000 miles from new they are out there but it took me nealy 12 months to find a good one lol

    There's a proper chav boyracer in Stafford with a blue 2 litre. No matter how many times I give him a proper spanking he still comes back for more. Doesn't the 2l have the record of the slowest ever Golf GTi?

    No contest really, the 2.0L is a turd.

    Also if you get a later 1.8T aka the AUM engine not the AGU, its comes wity the K03s Turbo and is alot easier to tune than the older AGU.

    as mart says 2.0 = Dog turd

    AGU engine code is better for tuning as it comes with a large ported head and there are alot less sensors that can go wrong plus you could add a AUM ko3s turbo which can be had for pennies these days and remap taking it to 230+ BHP

    and then you can add a 4bar fuel pressure regulator, 4bar fuel pump, 3 inch maf, yellow 310cc vauxhall calibra turbo injectors and a custom remap.......to take you to 250bhp
