2009 Jetta TDI First Dyno Video
In March 2009 we were one of the first, if not the first, to tune a new 2009 Common-Rail VW TDI and dyno it. We used one of the most conservative dyno machines around, with real-world no-nonsense horsepower and torque numbers.
Stock dyno result: 133hp and 225ft-lb torque.
After chip tuning: 168hp and 315ft-lb torque (without line smoothing) 163hp and 295ft-lb (with line smoothing).
The 30hp and 70ft-lb gain is impressive, and as you can see in the video the car is still 100% smoke-free!
You can see a tow hitch installed in this car. After chip tuning, the owner said that a trailer in tow feels weightless! We also retain the factory EGT (exhaust gas temperature) limiter in the ECU. During hot weather the ECU may reduce power to maintain EGT, however none of our clients have experienced this (with outside temps as high as 30C / 86F!).
