    I've had the 2.0 Tdi 140 PD done (not on my current one, yet) previously by Angel Tuning, cost me about 200 and took it up to a little less than 190bhp, no issues with smoke, clutch, dis, just a judder at 82mph, the guy from Angel came out a further 2 times and re mapped it until the fault was resolved, really enjoyed the car, it just made me smile every time I accelerated, in fact think I might price it up again now....

    Had my A6 2.0tdi done by Chipped UK, Clutch slipped a litlle but he did power it up for me lol, sadly for me I think the boost was too high as it went through a few turbos!!! But on a day to day basis, loved driving it, no lags etc and pulled like a train. In the past also has a MKIV golf done by RediTuning, now that was awsome, no issues with clutch, smoke, turbos etc, truly brilliant.

    I'm looking at getting my 2.0tdi remapped as well but don't know which to go for so i'm interested in the response.

    i had a Fabia VRS done a few years ago by Jabba and that flew but it bellowed black smoke out when under load. It was so bad when looking out the back window you couldn't see the cars behind

    Cant remember to be honest. I sold it after its 4th Turbo went. To be honest it had the porous cylinder head but did get that sorted, sadly not under warranty! ouch. The guys who do the remaps will be able to talk you through the boost, remember they turned mine up but told me it was still within acceptable limits! I think I was just plain unlucky, sure you will be fine.

    Had my Fabia vrs done by angel tuning, Put the boost up in the turbo by roughly 0.1 bar, the turbo handled that just fine, just let it warm up and cool down like you would anyway hopefully. Did go through a clutch though, so is recommended to get an uprated clutch for some models. Top service from angel tuning, they're coming outto do my 3.2 on monday. definately use them again, especially on a diesel!!!
