VW Citi Golf 1.8i R

Postby J-10-M » Mon Nov 15, 2010 10:38 pm

howsit guys,

I saw 2 of these R lines today, and i couldnt help wondering how much their motors differ from a normal 1.8?

I've been searching up and down on the net, and tried the search function, but its pretty hard becuase the 'R' just gets ignored! :)

Any way, any body have a link to the proper specs of the motor?
Do they use a different cam, conrods etc
what other internal changes do these motors have that differ from past 1800?

Thanks

Huh? I honestly doubt this. My car has the same engine as the r and honestly i think the restriction is the exhaust. Its smaller than the 50mm aftermarket ones i've seen and its noticeably smaller.

My car made 104.3hp @kar

definately cammed though cos you can just hear that stuff idle.
it's definately quicker than a cti but i guess mp9 and management must come into play here too + branch and zorst. one things for sure, the R line mk1s run lekker robot to robot.

Who said anything about cti? he was comparing 1.8i and R line, they both came out same time IIRC.

The 1.8 R Lines were supposed to be the only MK1 with this motor. It was a sport model brought out by VWSA and was limited numbers. The kit was local and nice too.. after all said and done, the end result looked good.

However....

There was a supply problem for the body kit and VWSA decided to bring out another "limited edition" 1.8i citi. This motor is exactly the same in all aspects to the R Line, just the body kit is what seperates these two cars.

If you can find one in good nic and low mileage.... grab and keep!! :cool:
