Self Study Program 922903 – The 2.0L 4V TFSI Engine with AVS

VAG SSP 922903 . The turbocharged 2.0L 4V chain-driven AVS engine (CAEB) described in this Self-Study Program is a development of the 1.8L chain-driven engine (EA 888 family) introduced in Europe in 2006. The 1.8L engine, known as the Stage 0 engine, was the basis for the chain-driven 2.0L 4 cylinder engine (CCTA/CBFA) introduced in North America during the 2008 model year.

This EA 888 family of engines is replacing the belt-driven camshaft engines within the Volkswagen Group world wide.

The 2.0L 4V chain-driven AVS engine is a further development of the earlier CCTA/CBFA engine. The cylinder block, crankshaft assembly and pistons of the CCTA/CFBA engine are similar to those of the CAEB engine. However, major changes to the cylinder head and the addition of the Audi Valve Lift System (AVS) to the exhaust camshaft of the CAEB distinguishes this engine from the CCTA/CBFA engines.

Also included in this Self-Study Program is a description of changes needed to make a non-AVS 2.0L 4V chaindriven engine compliant with SULEV emission standards.

To see a brief description of the development history and a specification comparison of the EA 888 engines, please see the Appendix at the end of this book.
