Novice Help

545 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Fast2.0L
I'm considering buying a 2.0 Jetta. I'm kinda familiar with the affordable products available (headers, exhaust, CAI, am I missing a whole lot?)
But I'd like to hear from experienced buyers and owners. Did you get a lot of power? Satisfying power? Did it become an unexpected, uncontrollable money-pit? How about reliability? Thanks.

All depends on how much power you want. If you just want bolt ons and are satisfied with those then the 2.0L is fine. If you want to start turboing it or making any sort of real power it will quickly become a money pit with failing trannys and short life clutches.
