    Advice needed: 2007 Audi A3 S line 140 tdi

    ello all!
    I have put a deposit on an Audi A3 S line tdi 140 could you tell me a little info about them please?

    After searching the net i didnt realise there was a couple of different engines, is this the PD engine if so what are they like this car has 30,000 miles on the clock one owner from new would i have been better to get the later cr engine??
    Also what are they like after remapping?

    thank you!

    LOL ! Most people do their research BEFORE they buy the car!

    Yes it should be a PD engine. What year is it?

    The CR engine is a bit more refined. Quieter and smoother apparently. However, I have the PD engine and I love it. Most people on here have it also!

    And with a little remap, It will FLY!!!!!!!!!

    You can get genuine trims to put over your existing pipes(need to remove outer pipe first though)

    Stafford audi on ebay list them from time to time. Cheap as chips, around 20ish quid. Be quick when they come up though, as a few people are looking for them now

    ?
    Main difference is the PD170 has a different ECU,injectors and turbo. In my opinion the PD140 is a better engine.
    06 Audi 2.0 PD140 Sport TDI Quattro S-LINE.
    Old engine 330 bhp @ flywheel 263 bhp @ wheel 490 lb torque. Audidriver write up HERE
    Now stripped and playing with an uprated Cryo treated engine fitted with bigger turbo,water/methanol,uprated injectors etc etc.Wanting 400 bhp and 500 lb torque.

    Other car 500+ bhp MK4 Golf R32 turbo.

    Much better mpg ( which is the whole point of having a diesel really ),less bloody censors to throw the car into limp mod and it doesn`t have a dreaded DPF fitted to it.
