Re: Need help on abbreviations (red_devil)

AWD = engine code for 2000-2001.5 1.8t's
AWW= engine code for 2001.5-2001 1.8ts
AWP = engine code for 2002 1.8t's
AWD uses a k03
AWW/AWP uses a k03 housing with k04 compressors, so it's capable of making more power efficiently.
OEM = Original Equipment Manufacturer... basically anything referred to as "stock" or "factory"
