      Trying to the order the Borla catback exhaust right now... need to know the engine I have in order to get the right one. Is there a way I can find out or does it not even matter?

      Should be stamped on one of the stickers under your hood. Also if you look by the spare tire, there is a sticker there that will tell you.

      They also sometimes stamp it in your owners manual in one of the first couple booklets.

      Yeah, the 5th position of the VIN is the engine type. But each year is different. So for 2010 (which my Golf VI is) the codes for the engine are:

      A= 4 cyl 2.0L 200hp (CCTA) Eos
      A= 5 cyl 2.5L 170hp (CBTA-M) Golf
      A= 4 cyl 2.0L 200hp (CBFA-PZEV*) Jetta
      B= 5 cyl 2.5L 170hp (CBUA-PZEV*) Golf
      D= 4 cyl 2.0L 200hp (CBFA-PZEV*) GTI
      F= VR6 3.6L 280hp (BHK) Touareg 2
      G= 5 cyl 2.5L 150hp (BPR-PZEV*) New Beetle and New Beetle Convertible
      J= 4 cyl 2.0L 200hp (CCTA) Jetta
      K= 4 cyl 2.0L 200hp(CCTA) Passat / P.Wagon
      K= V6 3.0L TDI 225hp (CATA) Touareg 2
      L = 4 cyl 2.0L 200hp (CCTA) CC
      L = 4 cyl 2.0L TDI 140hp (CJAA) Jetta and Jetta SportWagen
      L= 4 cyl 2.0L 200hp (CBFA) Passat / P.Wagon
      M= 4 cyl 2.0L TDI 140hp (CJAA) Golf
      M= 4 cyl 2.0L 200hp (CBFA-PZEV*) Passat/Passat Wagon
      N= 4 cyl 2.0L 200hp (CCTA) CC
      P= 4 cyl 2.0L 200hp (CBFA-PZEV*) CC
      U = VR6 3.6L 280hp (BLV) CC, Passat and Passat Wagon
      V = 4 cyl 2.0L 200hp (CCTA) GTI , Tiguan
      W= 5 cyl 2.5L 150hp (BPS) New Beetle, N.B. C.
      X= 5 cyl 2.5L 170hp (CBTA-M) Jetta and Jetta SportWagen
      Z= 5 cyl 2.5L 170hp (CBUA-PZEV*) Jetta and Jetta SportWagen

      You pretty much need the vin decoder for each year.

      Years 2007 and prior can be found here:
