Go PD130!

10 posts in this topic

I've been keeping track of the tuners and i's looking like the PD130 is really the way to go.

I was going to go for a 2.5 quattro but who needs to when you can get the same power out of a chipped 1.9.

As an added bonus, it'll be a lot lighter as well, which will mean even better performance.

I know you can do all that....and probably have better fuel economy......but the V6 does have that V6 rumble that cannot be had an a V4, and you can chip the V6 too, so you'll have loads more power (200+BHP)

Go for the PD130 Mark, since I had mine chipped the performance is quite amazing, the torque really catches people out and with the Quattro drive, the whole package is great.

I like my car heart.gif

my mate at work has an A4 2.5 tdi and it's brilliant. even the v6 sound on the engine is good and as for the torque; well, the fecker really does pull like a train. i'd love to have a go in a chipped one ECLIPSe.gif

Just to clarify things:-

It would be in an A6, as I need the room over an A4.

Now, the only problem is that you can't get a A6 PD 130 quattro.

I do like AWD, my last two cars being AWD but the added weight of the quattro system plus the V6 weight is a serious handicap to performance.

Choices, choices!

You defo need a (chipped) V6 then for all the extra weight of the A6......

Chip a V6 180bhp TDI and the power goes to 210 and torque to about 450Nm. Ive done it and the car is transformed! 30 - 70 accel takes about 6.5secs which is not bad for something weighing 1600kg. Fuel consumption is about 38mpg overall which is not upto the PD's tho
