Not the best of the bunch, suposedly had issues with head gaskets/porous cyl heads however i have one on a golf mk4 with over 200k miles and its running perfectly ! Mapping will do 150 Bhp, they use the same turbo as the VE engine GT1749v so upgrading that would be a wise move before upping the power. The pd150 turbo gt1749vb is a popular upgrade...

Ok thank you I just want it to be bit faster its takes long to hit 130km or 70mph.

I had 1.9 cdti 150bhp
And jtd 85kw 115hp their diesel engines are way faster then tdi engines I think ?

Probably your car is not running right, it should hit 70Mph pretty quick however i dont know what your expectations are, many cars out there are mapped and it shows...mine is stock and just made a trip of 2000 miles without any issues...good cars !

Sounds like you need to scan it and check the timing etc, the 115 isn't super slow although definitely better with a map.

Also worth noting that in a golf mk4 it's rather brisk, the car weighs little more over a ton so the power to weight is adequate. As above, get it mapped if you wish but replace turbo for something a bit more modern: gt1749va or vb...done a a3 a few years ago with a bv43a turbo and it was fast to 100 Mph !
