I was at the dealership today and was looking around. I was looking at the Passats and saw that the 30v Engine puts out 190 hp stock. The new 24v engine will put out 201 HP, correct?? Now I know that just because an engine has 6 more valves doesnt make it more powerfull, but I would imagine that in this case it would seeing as it comes from the same company. Why didnt VW just put the 30v motor in the GTi instead of the 24v??? Just wondering. TIA

Re: Question about the 30v motor.... (-=VdubGuY=-)

The Passat engine comes from Audi and is wider than the available space in the MK4. It also has 2 heads, and is nothing like the VR6 at all.

The Passat motor is a traditional (60 deg?) V6, so it is much bigger. It also mounts front-back rather than traversly in the Mk4 cars.
