What year did the Passats get the 170hp motor 1.8t, instead of the 150hp? I read somewhere the the head is different on the 170hp motor. They went with bigger valves? Someone help me out.

Injector size, intake manifold volume, variable cam timing, hybrid K03/K04 turbo (this is just a K03 housing with a K04 compressor), different cat outlet diameter and overall length....that's it.

Also, It's doesn't matter as much which one you get (150 or 170) if you are to chip them. The numbers from APR for the chipped 150 is 200 (+50hp), while they churn out 208 w/ the 170(+38). Pretty close.
