Hey, it might be better to post your question in the TDI Conversions section so more people will see it! Also, the TDI 101 section is a good sounding board for general questions. Welcome to the club!

I'm planning to put a diesel in an mk2 gti, what would be the best route .. the 1.6td or 1.9td... and what would be a good way to get more power out either of the two motors? thanks.

would PD TDI injectors work in my non PD engine? I'm thinking about getting a hybrid turbo conversion done, and somebody told me I could just save a bit of money and install a PD160 turbo and injectors to my engine and expect to reach around 190bhp with a decent map? A FMIC would probably be necessary then.

My car is a Seat Leon SE TDI, (110hp) ((i think its the same engine as in the Golfs, my engine code is ASV, so I think its equivelent is ALH?)) and Ive currently had it mapped to around 145bhp, but I want more hp! I would love to get 200bhp from my engine but I'm completly lost with what to do next. Thanks

Just wondering I heard from somebody that you should let the turbo charger cool off by letting the car idle for 5 min or so after a long trip??? I have a '09 TDI Jetta. Any truth to this

Its a good idea, Yes.

It will help prolong the life of the turbo, I only do it after i've been abusing the car a bit, most of the time I just let it idle for 20 seconds or so before I turn it off.

Here is a FAQ that is missing the "A" part.
Why is discussing removal of the DPF taboo for being illegal, yet its perfectly okay to discuss removing the EGR and cat (both of which are just as illegal)?

Among the moderators there is no distinction between removal of the DPF, catalytic converter or EGR. All are illegal and will be dealt with accordingly.

However, the reality is that there are about a dozen moderators for:
Threads: 268,326, Posts: 2,887,056, Members: 77,402, Active Members: 20,825 (as of the time of this posting)

There is no damn way to catch every thread and every post about defeating emission controls and other illegal activity. We can only act on those threads and posts that are reported-in from other members and also the blatantly obvious threads that moderators catch from a cursory scan of the forums such as those entitled, "How do I delete my EGR/DPF/cat" and also posts from people with a history of trolling and argumentative behaviour on the subject.

If you have a different experience, help us do some something about it by reporting offending threads instead of b!tching about it.

ok folks.
say you had this 2000 TDI Beetle
say you had a wife with a heavy foot
say you wanted to increase the sluggish performance, but didn't want to hurt reliability, longevity and if you could help it, keep the mileage around the same...

what would you do to it?
(and please explain as you would be speaking to a 6 yr old, as i'm pretty much in the dark when it comes to diesels).

you could start by telling me what to do PRIOR to adding power enhancers...like cleaning this or that, i've read about cleaning an intake and egr, feel free to also point me to links on how to's.

thanks in advance
