    Feeling dumb for asking but...

    How do I know if my TDi is the PD engine / what BHP - the chap who sold me it said it's a 115 bhp, which would make it a PD, right? but Wiki says the 115's came out in 2000 and mine is a 1999 :-(

    Is there a code I can look for to tell?

    Cheers

    There should be sticker in your service book listing all the codes, the same sticker can be found in the spare wheel well. You can look up the codes on the Internet to see what your car has.

    Quality tuning boxes that plug into the injector wiring loom or generic remaps are the way to go with the pd engine, however the turbocharger is the bottleneck and won't flow more than 150Bhp. I would upgrade the turbo to the pd130 one from a b5 passat or audi a4 and also the intake manifold + boost pipes. The engine will breathe better and with a good map will deliver 150-170 Bhp and enough torque to upset the clutch ! The pd115 is different to the AWX/AVF 130 pd tdi engines, the later have a stronger bottom end.

    I think for a first step to go from 115 to a more drivable 140 - 150 with a tuning box sounds like a winner - not sure my wife needs bigger turbos etc (but then you never know). Me on the other hand once I buy my A3 diesel will definitely be looking for the 170+ area :-)

    Any tuning box is a bodge, just reflash the damn ECU.

    Unicorn sorted out my mates PD Bora, so i'd give them a shout.

    Cheers Aragon - I will have a look into that.

    2 totally unrelated things, your link for B5 parts for sale - shows nothing for sale, is there more to come? and how do you get those cool MPG meters at the bottom?

    Thanks

    Yeh most of my parts have sold off now. I do still have an S4 saloon rear bumper but thats about it.

    The MPG meters are from Fuelly | Share and Compare Your MPG you sign up there and feed in data each time you fill up, and it calculates your MPG.
