    How to tell the difference between TDi100 and TDi130?

    Hi all,

    So im STILL on the prowl for a car and i have a question.

    As there are two versions (maybe 3?) of the 1.9 tdi engine, i naturally see a number of different models for sale, some claiming tdi100 others tdi 130s etc. Now so far Ive been looking at a few and hoping the Tdi 100 claim was wrong and hope they are 130s- and how ive been doing that is entering their reg's into confused.com which comes back with the model. However every advertised tdi 100 ive managed to get a reg from so far and put through confused, has all come back as a tdi 130 model.

    So, is there any way I can tell???

    Also if I eventually inadvertantly end up with a tdi 100, being its a 1.9 the same as the 130 model, what is it exactly that makes the 130 the 130? Ie is it just a different turbo, or is it different compressions and all the rest of that jargon??

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Grangey

    The 130's have a red i on the boot badge, but a safer bet is the data sticker in the boot which will tell you the power in KW HP, should also be in the owners manual.

    100bhp = 74KW
    115bhp = 85KW
    130bhp = 96KW

    To be doubly sure check the engine code in case it's had an engine swap.

    Thanks mate thats a great help

    Do you have any idea what makes the 3 engines so different? like what makes the 130bhp 30bhp better off than the 100bhp model?

    Many thanks

    ^^ Stronger rods, lower compression, bigger injectors/longer duration, different tune and a stronger turbocharger... That's most of the differences.

    So not really something you can adapt the tdi100 engine into very easily/ cheaply.

    Thanks!

    130 TDI is the best all round model IMO.

    yep, the reason i bought a diesel is good MPG, the 2.5 is not good really. The 130 has a little bit of poke, while keeping good mpg.

    A remap is meant to help with both too..

    that IS handy thanks mate as thats backing up what ive read, the hpi says its AWX which from what ive read indicates its the 130! Would be very helpful for a 130 owner to confirm though!
