3 distinct performance modes


Use the RaceChip app to choose between 3 tuning modes;


  • Efficiency for saving fuel in urban traffic,
  • Sport for improved mid-range flexibility on open roads,
  • Race for maximum performance.



Individual fine tuning mappings


Our units come from the factory with the right map for your engine. Should this initial configuration not meet your expectations, our customer service is able to further adapt the settings of the 3 distinct driving modes Efficiency, Sport and Race to the performance characteristics of your engine. The new parameters will then simply be transferred from the app to your RaceChip.


Adjustable warm-up timer


It’s better for the engine if it is allowed to warm up properly before being asked to deliver maximum performance. The warm-up timer puts the upgraded performance on tap only after the engine has reached working temperature, reducing wear.


Automatic updates


The RaceChip app means you can download the lastest version of our optimisation software. The app installs it on the RaceChip automatically.

Advanced service features


The RaceChip app and our service features allow us to re-calibrate the fine tuning mappings according to your wishes and even to change the optimisation software completely if necessary. The changes are all transmitted by the app to your RaceChip.

Help differentiating CR/PD

Distinguishing between Common Rail (CR)
and Unit Injector (PD)

Applicable to certain Volkswagen AG model series with 2.0 TDI engines

Several Audi, Seat, Skoda and VW model series with 2.0 TDI engines use both CR and PD ("Pumpe-Düse" / Unit injector) technology. RaceChip chiptuning is specially customized to the applicable fuel injection technology with respect to both hardware and software. If your vehicle is specified in the list of applicable models below (all other 2.0 TDI models feature just one type of technology), it is important to determine, before choosing a tuning product, which type of injection technology is installed in your vehicle. For such models, you will therefore find the “CR” or “PD” designation after your engine code.

PerformanceThe following Volkswagen Group model series are applicable:Engine code CREngine code PD
100kW (136hp) Audi: A3 (8P), A6 (C6)
VW: Golf Plus, Jetta V, Passat B6
CAGB, CBAA, CFFA AZV, BMA, BNA, BRF
103kW (140hp) Audi: A3 (8P)
Seat: Altea (5P)
Skoda: Octavia (1Z), Superb (3T)
VW: Caddy (2K, 2C), Eos (1F), Golf V,
Golf VI, Jetta V, Passat B6, Touran (1T)
CBAB, CBDB, CFFB,
CFHC, CJAA, CLCB,
CLJA
BKD, BKP, BMM, BMP

If your vehicle is in this list and you are not sure if it is a CR or PD version, then simply follow one of the following steps to identify CR or PD technology.

Using the engine code:

For PD models, the engine code consists of 3 characters, while for CR there are 4 characters. You can find your vehicle’s engine code in the specification sheet in your service booklet or on the data sticker in your engine bay.
