No upgrades in this car's future. I simply don't have enough time, $$$, or patience for them. I like my little GTI's stock setup. It has plenty of power for my driving style & I get about 28-29 mpg. The only "mod" it's near future is a new set of performance tires.
Instead of doing mods, I save my extra pennies for whatever boutique synthetic oil we BITOGers are drooling over at the moment.
Yeah, that is true to a degree in that it shares the same bore centres for the block. But according to the latest Car and Driver magazine that speaks about this particular model, that's about the extent of the similarities. The specific output projection is not even CLOSE to half of a Lamborghini engine...
Not that it should come as a surprise to any of you!
