Question Is 2.0T TSI better than 2.0T FSI?

After reading this forum, I am bit confused
http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3889971

2.0T TSI has been out for over a year, how does it stack up in terms of reliability to 2.0T FSI?

I am new to VW and in the process of getting a MKVI by the end of the year.

The TSI is the way to go and reliability has been good. I recall it was first seen in North America from March 2008 Passats.

Reading the link you posted though, most people are just debating about the top-sided oil filter spilling gas during an oil change...as well as timing belt change on a transverse TSI engine.

Looking at both similarly spec'd engines (TSI & FSI) at 200hp, the TSI comes out on-top slightly better in power deliverey and realiability.

The previous link mostly speculated about the reliability of the TSI over FSI given it has timing chain, plastic water pump etc etc....

Here is good post about TSI engines

I know it is too early to have any engine related troubles, I would like to hear from other owners of MKVIs.

As long as the intake and the blow-off valve is made for the 2008.5/2009 TSI-engine MkV GTI, it should fit. For the intake, it will depend on the layout because I'm not sure if the engine bay shape of the Mk6 is different.

Both are good imo & each has their own strength & weaknesses.
