Big 1.8T tuning project: Our test golf achieves 700 hp!

In 2005 the BAR-TEK fleet was increased by a Golf IV GTI 1.8T. It should be a 1999 AGU with 150 hp. This 1.8T engine was one of the first 20V (valves) built by VW on the market to replace the successful G60 G-Lader series. The AGU engine belongs to the still quite "simple" and "stupid" engines, because it has no correct boost pressure control. This means that the engine control has no boost pressure sensor to control the actual boost pressure. Instead, the entire control system is controlled by the susceptible air mass sensor. The 1.8T AGU engine has the better connecting rods and large intake ducts in the cylinder head without variable valve timing adjustment (VVT).

His first car was a Polo Mk1 with a 40 Weber twin carburetor and 129 PS (95 kW). His second was an Audi 50. Today Bartek tunes Lamborghinis to 1000 PS (735 kW). Even as a young boy, Bartek disassembled vehicles and put everything back together better. He wrote his high school diploma with oil on his fingers. The trained automotive mechanic with a focus on engines and gearboxes was determined to go into motorsports. In his 10 years in Formal 1, he supervised 73 races, including as engine mechanic for Ralf Schumacher at Toyota. Since 2010, he has dedicated himself fully to his company BAR-TEK® and helps his customers to bring VW and Audi engines to peak performance.
