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.

A different kind of international understanding

German engineering for your Frenchman

The French car manufacturer has a reputation for quality so they must be doing a lot right.

A great challenge for RaceChip, the technological leader in chip tuning. To help make your Renault even better with German engineering, to give it even more power for the road and provide you with even more driving enjoyment. Just because Renaults are considered everyday cars doesn't mean that they should shy away from curvy country lanes or the overtake lane on the highway. RaceChip has custom-tailored solutions to improve almost any Renault, from saloons to convertible to coupé ,from Grandtour to GT, from van to SUV or transporter.

Savoir Vivre from Renault, German engineering from RaceChip. With RaceChip your Renault will have noticeably more power and take your driving experience to a whole new level. Our goal is for you to look forward to every ride in your Renault after installing our chip tuning.

Engine tuning via auxiliary devices from RaceChip is the most innovative method of improving performance. The tuning box is a special auxiliary device installed between the engine controls and sensors, a type of mini-computer with optimization software specially designed for your Renault engine. This leads to optimized electronic signals which control your engine, allowing for up to 30% more HP and {defval product='chip_ultimate' param='nm'}}% more Nm torque.

Chip tuning from RaceChip releases the latent reserves in your Renault engine. Renault itself uses this engine tuning principle when it offers various performance levels based on an identical engine block.

For example, Renault offers the Megane 1.5 dCi with power ranging from 86 HP to 110 HP. Or there's the Laguna with 2.0 cDi FAP engines ranging from 131 HP to 173 HP. These differences are primarily the result of various adjustments to the electronic engine controls. In order to make these adjustments the hardware must be designed in such a way that it contains considerable power reserves. In these power reserves is where you'll find our performance promise to you.

Our performance optimization meets the standards for quality and technological innovation that the manufacturer itself uses. Engine tuning from RaceChip always works within the engine's thermal and mechanical limits, and the engine protection systems integrated by Renault remain completely active. Enjoy maximum power without making compromises when it comes to quality and safety.

Drive your Renault with more dynamics and speed than ever before: experience driving in a whole new way with RaceChip.

Whichever engine you drive – whether dCi diesel or 16V 180 TCE gasoline engine, a dCi eco 2 or dCi FAP – with chip tuning from RaceChip you'll optimize the power reserves that are sitting completely unused in your Renault. The difference between standard and tuned with RaceChip is major:

Whether a roomy Scenic for the family or a Trafic for the trip to the airport, you'll be underway with 114 HP with a standard condition 2.0 dCi. Invest in a RaceChip Pro 2 and after 10 – 15 minutes of DIY installation - voilà! Suddenly you have 150 HP and 372 Nm, which will shed off the sedate nature of some saloons.

A Laguna 2.0 dCi FAP brings 150 HP to the streets from the factory. With RaceChip ultimate, in a few steps you'll have 196 HP (and 425 Nm) that will sweeten even the slightest push on the accelerator. By the way, that's much more power than the next highest 2.0 dCi model. And you'll get this at a significantly better price than you'd pay for the extra power at this level from the manufacturer.The Megane 1.5 dCi eco2 with 110 HP remains far below its abilities and uses only a portion of the potential in the brilliant 1.5l diesel engine from Renault. Even our entry-level module, RaceChip One, easily

Renault can also do gasoline engines: a Megane 2.0 16V TCe comes with an impressive 250 HP standard. But what's that against the 322 HP and 435 Nm with a RaceChip Ultimate? RaceChip can also make stronger gasoline vehicles.

Even at the upper end of the Renault performance scale, that's far from the end with RaceChip. The most powerful Megane 2.0 16V TCe is already quite well motorized with 265 HP. However, let's be honest: if you've got this type of vehicle, then you're looking for the perfect driving experience. We'll be glad to help you there. With RaceChip Ultimate you'll take your Megane RS to sports car level and can leave whole segments behind you with 340 HP and 454 Nm. And that without breaking a sweat.

We've also been able to secure you decisive benefits in Renault's commercial vehicle sector. For example, the Master dCi 125 increases to 158 HP and 375 Nm with our RaceChip One. More power when you need it, and you'll have sufficient power reserves at your beck and call—even with a load. Plus you'll have RaceChip fuel economy optimization, which works positively on your budget and helps you save money at the pump—particularly at high-performance output. You'll find an attractive savings potential, especially for vehicle fleets.

Compact car with a big personality: the Clio 1.5 dCi 90 just needs a RaceChip One, 10-15 minutes for DIY installation, and you'll have a very competitive 110 HP available.
