Help differentiating CR/PD

Several Audi, Seat, Skoda and VW model series with 2.0 TDI engines use both CR and PD ("Pumpe-Düse" / Unit injector) technology.

RaceChip chip tuning is specially customized to the applicable fuel injection technology with respect to both hardware and software. If your vehicle is specified in the list of applicable models below (all other 2.0 TDI models feature just one type of technology), it is important to determine, before choosing a tuning product, which type of injection technology is installed in your vehicle. For such models, you will therefore find the “CR” or “PD” designation after your engine code.

Performance The following Volkswagen Group model series are applicable: Engine code CR Engine code PD
100kW (136hp) Audi: A3 (8P), A6 (C6)
VW: Golf Plus, Jetta V, Passat B6
103kW (140hp) Audi: A3 (8P)
Seat: Altea (5P)
Skoda: Octavia (1Z), Superb (3T)
VW: Caddy (2K, 2C), Eos (1F), Golf V,
Golf VI, Jetta V, Passat B6, Touran (1T)

If your vehicle is in this list and you are not sure if it is a CR or PD version, then simply follow one of the following steps to identify CR or PD technology.

Using the engine code:

For PD models, the engine code consists of 3 characters, while for CR there are 4 characters. You can find your vehicle’s engine code in the specification sheet in your service booklet or on the data sticker in your engine bay.

Opel: Performance optimization with RaceChip

Opel is a cult car closely associated with post-war Germany. With current models like Insignia, Astra and Adam, this brand is once again in with the times and shows its potential. What could be a better fit for RaceChip, the German technology leader in chip tuning? With RaceChip tuning boxes you can optimize the power reserves in almost every Opel, tangibly increasing your driving pleasure.

We offer you our innovative engine tuning method for all Opel models, whether compact cars or vans, 3-door, 4-door or 5-door, sports or country touring wagons, or SUVS.

Electronic power improvement for your Opel

Opel stands for steering new directions in your head; RaceChip stands for an awakening under the bonnet. With significantly more power, you can enjoy driving even more: that's the idea behind engine tuning with RaceChip.

The technology is complex, but the principle is simple. For this state-of-the-art electronic performance improvement a special auxiliary device is installed between the engine controls and sensors – a type of mini-computer with optimization software specially-designed for your Opel engine. The optimized electronic signals that control the engine give it a power increase of up to 30% more HP and up to 30% more Nm torque.

With chip tuning from RaceChip you can unleash the manufacturer's reserves built into your Opel – by optimizing the electronic engine controls. Opel itself uses this principle when they offer various performance levels based on the same engine block. For example, Opel offers the 2.0 CDTI ECOTEC diesel in the Insignia between 110 and 160 HP; the 1.9 CDTI in the Vectra is available from 101 HP to 150 HP. This is primarily the result of various adjustments to the electronic engine controls.

Chip tuning from RaceChip works in accordance with the same principle used by the manufacturer themselves. In this way, there are no compromises when it comes to quality and power.

Performance improvement from RaceChip always operates within your engine's thermal and mechanical power reserves.

Engine tuning via auxiliary devices also ensures that the engine protection systems in your Opel remain completely active and that you stay on the safe side.

Unleash your passion for your Opel in a brand new way: with much more power, dynamic and driving pleasure.

No matter which engine you drive, whether the CDTI, Turbo Ecotec, Turbo ecoFLEX or VXR[DA24] engine, your Opel will be more fun than ever with RaceChip chip tuning. Here are just some of the many fascinating examples of the power boosts you can achieve with RaceChip chip tuning:

With regard to the Insignia, which Opel offers in several performance levels in the 2.0 CDTI ECOTEC, you'll easily overtake the next-highest Opel model with RaceChip diesel chip tuning. Plus, you'll get this at a price that is much lower than what you'll pay for this extra power from the manufacturer.

An Insignia 2.0 CDTI ECOTEC with standard 160 HP delivers a racy 212 HP and 442 Nm torque with RaceChip Ultimate. The somewhat smaller 2.0 CDTI ECOTEC with 131 HP transforms into a powerhouse with RaceChip Pro 2, blowing away those in your way with 171 HP and 387 Nm.

RaceChip Ultimate shows the power you can really get from a BiTurbo in an Insignia 2.0 CDTI BiTurbo. The standard 194 HP is far from its potential; it becomes an irresistible 247 HP with RaceChip. With that, the Insignia needn't shy away from any others in its class.

But RaceChip can bolster up more than just Opel diesels. Take, for example, an Astra with 1.4 Turbo ECOTEC petrol engine with 140 HP. Even with our starter chip, RaceChip One, it can flex its muscles and zoom along with 170 HP and 242 Nm.

The Astra 2.0 Turbo VXR is heftier with an impressive standard 280 HP. It shows what it's really made of with RaceChip Ultimate: 349 HP and 505 Nm for sensational dynamics and abundant power. In this way you can take this compact, sporty car to a sports car level, leaving those behind you rubbing their eyes in disbelief.

Even at the high end of the performance scale there's still ample room for improvement. From an original 325 HP in the Insignia VXR 2.8 V6 Turbo Ecotec, in just a few steps with the RaceChip Ultimate you'll have 417 HP and 562 Nm. From a sporty saloon or sports touring car to a vehicle that makes some sports cars look old on the racetrack.

Breathe new life into the Opel Mokka and give it a power boost from RaceChip. With RaceChip Pro 2 at an irresistible value, the 1.7 CDTI ecoFLEX will bring a new groove into every family excursion, going from 131 HP standard to an impressive 158 HP. With up to 378 HP Nm torque, you can pull even heavy trailers with ease.
