To quote Arin@APR in the Stage 3+ Development thread...Why is the TSI always making more power with the K04 then the FSI?
The FSI head does not flow as well as the TSI.
The FSI is more susceptible to knock than the TSI.
The FSI does not have as good of a fueling system as the TSI.
The FSI has more internal losses compared to the TSI.
The TSI is just better so it makes more power. We should expect that form a completely new engine from VW. That's how progress works. That's all.
Especially the lack of "DSG!"I've convinced myself into not wasting my time with a Golf R. Ideally my next car would be an Audi TTRS but naturally the quantities they're supposed to be bringing to the States is absurdly small over the next two years. But the Golf R is disappointing to me.
