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.

Chip tuning from RaceChip for Škoda

Škoda was founded in 1895 and has been incorporated into the Volkswagen Group since 1991. In recent years this brand with the green, feathered arrow logo has met with success after success, with a growing market share through the combination of an attractive price, innovative solutions, and outstanding technology.

Those who purchase a Skoda also get a great cost-benefit ratio. RaceChip, the German technology leader in chip tuning, also offers the combination of an attractive price and the highest quality technology. With a tuning box from RaceChip you can finally utilize the power reserves in your Skoda – and all this at a much lower price than you would otherwise have paid for the next-highest motorisation from Skoda.

RaceChip offers this innovative way of engine tuning for almost all Skoda models, whether saloons or estate cars, spaceback or SUV, people carrier or compact car.

Electronic power improvement for your Skoda

Skoda stands for “simply clever” - an idea that is also very much associated with RaceChip. With a RaceChip tuning box that is packed full with the latest technology for electronic engine tuning, you'll have performance improvement that is simple to install and that activates noticeably more power for even more driving enjoyment. That's a simply cleverer idea.

The technology is highly sophisticated, but the principle is simple. A supplementary control unit specially developed by our engineers is installed between the engine control unit and the sensors. It's like a mini-computer loaded with RaceChip's in-house developed optimization software that is designed specifically for your Skoda engine. This software optimizes the electronic signals that are currently used to control engines, enabling up to 30% more power (HP) and up to 30% more torque (Nm).

With RaceChip chip tuning you can tap into the latent power reserves in your Skoda by optimizing the electronic motor controls. Skoda itself uses this principle when it offers various performance specifications based on the same engine block. For example, the 2.0 TDI CR in the Superb II is offered with both 140 HP and 170 HP, and the 1.6 TDI in the Octavia is offered with 90, 105 and 110 HP. This range of power is primarily the result of different settings the manufacturer places in your Skoda's electronic engine controls.

RaceChip makes no compromises to the manufacturer when it comes to quality and performance. The performance improvement from RaceChip optimizes only within the thermal and mechanical power reserves available in your Skoda engine. Furthermore, the use of a RaceChip supplementary control unit ensures that the engine protection systems in your Skoda remain completely active. You can really enjoy more power only with the highest quality development standards.

The clever way to give your Skoda more power and dynamics and benefit from more fun for yourself. With a RaceChip under the hood you'll be looking at even more amazed faces in the future when you press the accelerator.

No matter which engine you drive – whether TDI or TSI, TDI RS, TDI PD or TDI CR – with RaceChip chip tuning you won't recognize your Skoda's power. Here are just a few of the many persuasive examples of how much latent power potential can be utilized effortlessly with chip tuning from RaceChip:

The current Octavia model with 2.0 TDI engine offers a standard 150 HP on the asphalt. With the RaceChip Pro 2 it shirks off the last shred of lag and is set to impress with a decisive 184 HP and supreme 406 Nm. With these values the 2.0 TDI with RaceChip engine tuning leaves the standard 2.0 TDI RS in its wake, and at a considerably lower price.

However, the Octavia 2.0 TDI RS can do significantly more than is possible in factory condition. From 184 HP and 380 Nm, it can effortlessly reach 224 HP and 470 Nm with RaceChip Ultimate. With it you can make your estate car a powerful sportster that is as impressive at the traffic lights as it is in the fast lane.

Gasoline engines from Skoda offer outstanding opportunities to tap into more power. A prime example: the Octavia 2.0 TSI RS with 220 HP. With the uncomplicated DIY of RaceChip Ultimate, you'll be in the powerful league of sports cars and saloons with 272 HP and 440 Nm. This means it is more in its element on curvy country roads, but also shows off its qualities on the fast lane of the highway.

The Superb is the largest Skoda, and more than a few say that as an overall package it ranks ahead of its sister models from the company. Tune the Superb 2.0 TDI CR with a RaceChip Pro 2 and experience a small miracle. From a standard 170 HP and 350 Nm you'll suddenly have 222 HP and 437 Nm that will make you momentarily forget the Superb's size and give your vehicle new dynamics and agility you are sure to enjoy.

The smaller Superb 2.0 TDI CR also has plenty of room for more power. Even with the entry model, Racechip One, you can easily turn the standard 140 HP into 178 HP, making overtaking child's play and business trips a pleasure. At the same time, the One also offers optimized fuel consumption for your vehicle. Not only can you drive faster, you can also drive for less money.

Be clever and put your Octavia 1.6 TDI and its standard 105 HP on the right track with a RaceChip Pro 2. 129 HP and 315 Nm are a welcome plus when it comes to more power.

You'll have more dynamics and power off-road as well: blaze your own trail through uncharted territory in your Skoda Yeti 1.8 TSI with a RaceChip Pro 2. From a standard 160 HP, you'll get 205 HP and 320 Nm – there's no mountain too high and no trailer too heavy. Even the compact Fabia 1.6 TDI CR with a standard 105 HP can get a boost with the RaceChip Pro 2 to a suddenly speedy 135 HP and 330 Nm torque, making this a relatively powerful player.
