I dunno...and probably...

I think you have this a little backwards...Seems to me that our favorite
5-cyl is but the evergreen vw inline 4 cyl plus one...funny how the
displacement of only 4/5 of my 4kq's motor is _exactly_ the displacement of
my departed 84 Jetta Gli...

My guess on the 1.8t is that this block and lower end share an awful lot
with said vw engines...hmmm, would that mean all those cheap speed parts
(pistons, cranks) for vw motors slip right in?   Chip, _and_ increase
displacement, what's the limit?

BTW, has anybody figgered out how to get around that little OBD-II bother yet?
