I'm a bit of a diesel geek and have been modifiying and tuning tdi engines now for about 10 years. I'm hoping that I can pick up a few more tips from this site....

Currently running as follows
-2001 Golf TDI ALH which is now making 191hp/303lbs ft....the current mods have a lot more potential when the car is mapped....hoping for 220hp/350lbsft.......
-2004 Passat PD130 AWX which is mapped to 170hp/280lbsft.....the car is currently undergoing serious mods....hybrid turbo, fmic, decat down pipe, 2.5" SS exhaust, port matched inlet, EGR delete pipe, coilovers and power flex bushings...
-1999 Golf GT TDI which is currently being stripped for 1/4mile runs and sprinting......

My main interests are tuning....

Why TDI for the drag racing? That is quite a collection you have there, how is the mpg in normal driving on them? If VW made cars like that from the factory I'm sure they would certainly open up a new customer group for people who want more power+reasonable economy.

Why not tune a TDI for 1/4mile runs......a quick TDI is capable of making it into the 13's which I think would be a lot of fun.....I have a few more cars but alas they're petrol powered........the economy of the cars on part throttle is not affected.....
