      Should be the APH. All NBs had 150hp for the 1.8T other than the Turbo S. This should have the regular KO3.

      I saw on unitronics website that if you flash the ecu it would go up to 195hp don't know how true it is thought but it's a pretty cool thing to jump that much if it really does

      With a downpipe and intake, it's probably pretty close to that. It is definitely a noticable difference though.
