The real answer is: Nobody really knows for sure. Ask 10 people, and you'll get 10 different answers. The bad news is that you can't even find out by buying the Bentley manual for the 2002, since it doesn't even cover the AWP engine. http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif

well, we know the boost was changed. that's been proven by vag-com logs.
that being said, nobody has come up with any new part numbers for exhaust / intake -- so that part hasn't been proven.
a tech from a dealer posted on here that the engines are the same hardware wise, and that if you have an aww and it blows, the suggested replacement is the exact same as the suggested replacement for an AWP.

Do you mean if the turbo blows?
If so then that stands to reason, it was never rumored the turbo was a different K03 type between AWW and AWP.

If you check the latest VW Driver magazine, there is an article on the 1.8T and it states that the hp increase if PRIMARILY achieved through an ECU change...
