Hey all, just been looking at some power / torque / weight / remap figures for the 8L PD130 and the New 8P 2.0TDI.
Although the stock 2.0TDI is quicker than a stock PD130 here is what I found when you remapped them both...
8L: Stock = 130bhp / Remapped = 180bhp (average)
8P: Stock = 170bhp / Remapped = 190bhp (average)
10bhp difference (the 8P has 5% more power than the 8L).
Now let's have a look at the weights:
180Kg difference (the 8P is 13% heavier)
On these figures alone I'd be inclined to say that they're pretty closely matched for acceleration although I reckon the remapped 8L would have the edge.
What do you guys think?
