8V or 16V?

Post by Chillmax » Sat Mar 31, 2018 4:36 pm

Hi All

1987 1.9 Petrol Manual GTi - it's listed as an 8V at 130BHP, isn't it more likely to be a 16V?

Hope you can see the pic & that it helps!!

Cheers - Justin

Nope, that's definitely an 8 valve engine; both from the power output and the photo.

Thanks Matt, indeed, someone on Youtube I was talking to agrees, even naming it the DA6 engine with 125bhp ;-)

Anyone got a nice 1988 or older BX for sale, 16V or 4x4 would be nice?
