I own an 87 Gti with a 1.8 8v and am planning on doing a swap for a 1.8 16v or 2.0 16v and was wondering which would be better performance wise. I was also wondering which would be easier to swap and if I would have to do a tranny swap? Also what the stock horsepower and torque are for both engine?
thanx Pat

- We actually went over this a couple months back.
It's very straight forward. In this case: more displacement = more power.

- Externally, the engines are almost identical. You can use your existing tranny.
