    Tbh I need to go through the paper work and see if it's had a Dyno I think it has at some point. Also what are differences between the bam engine and the 1.8t? Is there a visable way of telling? Coz mine has the cupra r bumpers on? And apparently mapped to a stage 2 with stage 2 fly wheel & clutch. I wonder what I would need next for a stage 3 as everything is there! Waiting on v5 so I can tax it aswel so can't enjoy it atm

    Lift up the engine cover, left hand side of the engine will have 3 letters stamped into the head

    The difference is the size of the turbo the early 1.8T had a K03 turbo then later changed to a slightly larger K03S and the cupra R/S3 uses a larger K04 turbo
