Is there any worthwhile mods?

Was thinking about de-catting the exhaust. Hoping it would give it a nice noise. Suppose I'm just thinking trial and error.

Do hope to get a 20vt in but could be a few months off yet. Mainly thinking what can I upgrade, not looking to spend thousands but just a little bit to bide me over till the possible 20valve!

Cheers guys :)

not worth doing anything to the 2l engine imo, save the money towards new car


Or you can spend on interior/exterior styling parts if you want then you can transfer over if buying another mk4


If you decat you will need to have a pal to do your mot

A panel filter will make a small difference in both sound and performance. The biggist thing I would say is making sure your spark plugs, ht leads and the coil pack are all in tiptop shape. My coil pack had multiple cracks and after replacing I could notice the difference.

The exhaust on the APK relies on a certain amount of back pressure to run correctly so only specific exhausts are reccomended.

As everyone will say the I little to gain on a naturally aspirated engine unless you drop ££££'s on a superchrger.

Unlike everyone will say it Is a decent engine with plenty of power. I would agree that it is underpowered for its size but still has more than enough. I have no issues with the acceleration or power available.
