    Thread: what does 5v turbo mean???

    1. 10-05-2004 04:48 PM #1
      might seem dumb but I was just curious. I know someone who has a TT and they asked me.

      The turbo doesnt have 5 valves, the 4 cylinders do

      it means that there is 5 valves per each of your 4 pistons making it a 20 valve engine

      slickstick, what exactly are you saying?

      the turbos ARE 4 cylinders. the 1.8 liter, turbo, 4 cylinders in the Audis and VWs are ALL 5 valves per cylinder engines. 3 intake valves, 2 exhaust valves.

      also, the:
      Passat V6
      Audi V8, V6, and 2.7t V6 are all 5v motors

      So does that mean that my friends TT has the same engine as my GTI? I have the 1.8T. What are the engines available in the TT?

      IF your buddy has the 180hp TT and you have the 180hp GTI, you do indeed have the same engine. If he has a 225, you have very different engines. If you don't know which he has, the 6spd gearbox or the twin exhaust tips will give it away. again, they ALL have 5 valves per cylinder.

      p.s. the 3.2 VR6 is not 5v technology.
