Did those MK5s use the EA888 engine or did it use the older (and stronger) EA113 engine? (Answer, they used the EA113 engines, since the EA888 engines didn't make their way into MKV GTIs until late 2008.)

It's quite clear that VW/Audi engineers don't specify the EA888 engine for high output applications.

It's also quite clear that ALL of their high performance (227 HP and up) 2.0 T engines use fortified versions of the EA113 engine.

I'm assuming that VW/Audi engineers know more about their engines than you do, so I'll stand behind their opinion, as demonstrated by their chosen applications.
