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
CAGB, CBAA, CFFA AZV, BMA, BNA, BRF
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)
CBAB, CBDB, CFFB,
CFHC, CJAA, CLCB,
CLJA
BKD, BKP, BMM, BMP

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.

Perfectly engineered for Alpina

Make your vehicle stronger with Alpina

Alpina Burkhard Bovensiepen based in Buchloe, Germany has been garnering attention since the 1960s. Based on various BMW models, Alpina was able to position itself in the racing sports’ scene and make a name for itself. The engine was the most important focus of an Alpina vehicle. This was based on a BMW engine block and cylinder head and was modified for the company's various needs. From the Alpina D3 BiTurbo to the B5 S to the XD3 BiTurbo, you can't overlook or fail to hear these vehicles on the roads.

In order to get even more power out of your Alpina B3 BiTurbo, RaceChip offers its popular Powerboxes for engine tuning. In just a few steps you'll increase your torque from 500 Nm to up to 590 Nm and boost your BiTurbo from 360 HP to up to 426 HP. It's a power plus that you can see and feel!
