If you believe that VW changed anything on the engine from the TTS, then yes, you are correct.
Same engine, just marketed with lower hp amount and/or different tune for the US market?

I think the only difference is the intercooler and exhaust routing. Some think it causes the difference, I choose to think its a marketing thing from VW to not upset the TTS/S3 owners. The truth? who knows...

Who cares where VW "rates" their cars. Actual dyno WHP #s are 200 for the GTI and 225 for the R. Given that the R is heavier, it is no surprise that stock for stock they are nearly as fast.

Dyno numbers are irrelevant. The R traps about 3-5mph faster, and is about a half second faster in the 1/4. Not a ton at all, and most of that is due to the AWD launch. From a roll, they will be comparable, until 90+ where the K04 will start walking the IHI.

Either way, thats not what we were talking about...
