      Will use this thread to blog / compile all the technical data for the new 2014 2.0 TSI / 1.8 TSI motors coming in the MKVII VW Golf GTI/Jetta & Audi A4 B9.

      So far we know:

      • Direct injection & manifold injection (no more catch cans yaaah)
      • Canister type oil filter (no bueno)
      • Electric water pump with mechanical drive
      • Cylinder head is casted with integrated manifold - this will aid in overall weight reduction as turbocharger bolts directly to cylinder head

      Is the next GTI going to come with a turbo that basically can't be swapped out...?

      I wonder how that Electrical Water Pump will do, long term wise?...has any other manufacturer used that method before?

      It can be swapped but it's not going to be like anything you've seen before.

      Upgrades are going to really separate the men from the children. ;-)

      each generation newer is more expensive until people figure out the mods and how to install them.

      That will be interesting to see, I hope they at least put it where it can be swapped without changing the timing belt or other major disassembly to get to it.

      So the turbo is going to a turbo plus exhaust manifold? similar to the TDI?
      which is not much of anything to swap out for bigger, there are lots of different ones to choose from, then some go with a tuned manifold and a really big turbo.

      I think BMW has some electric water pumps, they also have some electrical (motor) controlled water thermostats (so they can actively control the engine operating temperature).

      MY 335 has the whole electric waterpump deal, seems to work well. So there is a second generation of the EA888 engine coming out? Is the turbo going to be a dual scroll jobbie like the new BMW N20 engine? Where is this info coming from?

      [edit] or this.. http://www.aachen-colloquium.com/pdf...Wurms_Audi.pdf

      Briefly details the integrated exhaust manifold and electric water pump.

      so i got a question. im an engineer, but by no means an expert in engine design.

      why woudl you want to cool the exuast gas BEFORE the turbocharger? reading that my document that was my understanding. seems to me your just pumping away energy then out the radiator, instead of funneling it through the turbocharger. the entire point of the turbocharger being to recycle the waste heat (energy) in the exaust and turn it into something useful - boost. thus the jump in both performance and fuel economy.

      but cooling the exuast before it gets to the turbo saps out a bunch of that energy.

      so why are they doing that?

      I dont get this:

      "This water-cooled exhaust manifold means that the need for full load enrichment is eliminated almost entirely."

      This doesnt make any sense. Unless the turbo is the weak point of the entire system, why would you reduce air volume (by reducing temperature) before the turbocharger?

      edit: ^^^ lol beat me to it, im also an engineer and dont get it

      In order to maximize fuel economy and to reduce hydrocarbons your ECU will instruct the fueling system to run at lambda 1, which is around 14.7:1 air fuel ratio for pump fuel. The only problem with this from an OEM stand point is Lambda 1 is very lean and will result in extremely hot exhaust gasses, especially under load. This is especially true on a turbocharged engine. In order to protect the turbo from excessive EGTs, the ECU will enter into component protection, which enriches the air fuel ratio by dropping lambda to as low as .6x on some models. Doing so will produce higher levels of hydrocarbons, increase fuel consumption and potentially decrease power.

      By cooling the exhaust gasses before they reach the turbocharger, they are able to reduce the risk of damaging the turbo, which means they can run near lambda 1, even in higher load situations.

      As emissions laws get greater and greater around the world each year, let's hope VAG continues to be on the forefront of new technologies and techniques designed to increase fuel mileage and decrease emissions without greatly impacting performance.

      ah, ok, they are worried about overheating the turbo. that makes sense.

      thanks

      Wouldn't it take a massive radiator to disperse the heat generated from trying to cool the exhaust gas? Also, I was under the impression that if you're cooling the exhaust before the turbo, you would also be reducing power. I guess it really does all work, but it's still a bit strange to me.

      Sounds like the newer revisions may not be up to the task of everyday high boost.. It has a lot of nice efficiency tricks and interesting techniques (mani built into head) but they are thinning out a lot of the parts of the motor to reduce weight.. Im no engineer but when modified won't it be less reliable with thinner cylinder walls, etc?
