If they told you this they're not tuning specialists!I have been told by a few tuning specialists that it isn't possible to remap the earlier 1.9 PD 115 engines because they have the earlier ECU. I have a W reg Golf TDI (registered mid May '00) does anyone know if this would be the old ECU or the newer version? When did VW start installing the new ECU in the cars?
It's a tough one to evaluate, you can get +20bhp on a remap and think woo this is great, but in reality another remap could've given you +40bhp from another vendor, but you don't know cause you went for the cheaper option. ?500 is alot in today's market for a 1.9 PD remap though, ?189 is a little too cheap, I'd be worried of the software/hardware and knowledge behind the outfit, you get what you pay for these days!
