Re: 2001 vs 2002 horsepower ratings (john s)
The 2001 have the K03 turbine with the K03 exhaust manifold(or something similar) and the 2002 AWP has the K03 turbine with the K04 exhaust manifold. And the ECU was upgraded and the transmission ration is different. But the AWW is actually rated at around 170 hp. It was stated on here awile ago the it was rated at 150hp to keep Audi buyers from going to VW, to keep from losing sales.
Why would someone buy the more expensive Audi A4 for performance when you could actually get a faster VW. That was stated on here before by someone, I think JettaRed, Maybe he will chime in.
But from what I know that is the only difference, and to be hones the AWP is faster but I have raced my friend in his WE AWW and I barely pulled on him. So I guarantee there is no 30hp difference. Definately closer to 10Hp difference.
