      ^ 20v as in the 1.8t ? I personally hate that motor. I'm on the Passat forums and see nothing but whining about boost/vac leaks, oil sludge, boost lag, the list goes on. I'd definitely use an ABA...

      Doesn't matter which is the better of the CIS variants nor how it compares to Digi II. All the CIS stuff is just getting harder and harder to find and more and more of it is turning up NLA.
