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.

Using engine images for CR and PD:

Perfectly engineered for Maserati

Make your vehicle stronger with RaceChip

If you ask car enthusiasts about the biggest sports car brands of all time, then one name will certainly be mentioned: Maserati. It's a brand with a history to which only a few brands can compare. The history of Maserati includes a wide range of sports car icons and incredible racing success.

Based in Modena and with a trident as a logo, the sports car company was founded by the five Maserati brothers in 1914 and has belonged to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) since 1993.

Even today, Maserati stands for Gran Turismo in classic, Italian design style. The four-seater saloons Maserati Quattroporte and Ghibli make up the Maserati model range together with the GranTurismo and GranCabrio.

Unfortunately, for many years Maserati was just a shadow of its former successful self. Under the leadership of Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, new and ambitious goals were set for the company with the trident emblem. The new mid-class model, the Maserati Ghibli, should sell 20,000 models annually. For 2015 the goal was set at a total of 50,000 Maserati models sold – and this for a brand that in 2013 didn't even sell 5,000 units.

However, in 2013 Maserati managed an impressive re-entry into the medium segment with the new Ghibli. The Ghibli is offered as a gasoline engine (Ghibli, Ghibli S and Ghibli S Q4) with 330 to 410 HP and – almost a novelty for Maserati – also as a diesel (Ghibli Diesel) with a 3.0l engine with 275 HP.

It's precisely this 3.0l diesel that we took to heart at RaceChip in order to awaken the real sports car with the trident. Our optimization software in the RaceChip Ultimate individually adapted for the Maserati diesel teases out 347 HP instead of the standard 275 HP and a breathtaking 735 Nm torque instead of the standard torque of 570 Nm. As a result, you will enjoy an impressive driving experience. Moreover, the same diesel engine with 275 HP is also integrated into the Maserati Quattroporte, the brand's luxury sedan, and optimized by RaceChip.
