Your lucky, it's a 24 valve. 200hp vs. 170 from the 12v.

run your vin number through the dealer, plus your engine code will tell you, plus I think the valve cover or head stamping or something on the motor will tell you. But yea Racer how do you know it's 24V?? cause GLI? I have GLS I ran my vin through dealer came back AWP motor code I think? so yea....ha ah
