Turbocharged Direct Injection or TDI is a design of turbo diesel engines, which feature turbo charging and cylinder-direct fuel injection, developed and produced by the Volkswagen Group. These TDI engines are widely used in all mainstream Volkswagen Group marques of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles produced by the company (particularly those sold in Europe). They are also used as marine engines - Volkswagen Marine, and Volkswagen Industrial Motor applications.

IN simple terms, TDI is an acronym for Turbocharged Direct Injection. This type of engine has turbo charging capabilities as well as direct fuel injection. It was made by the Volkswagen group. It is known to offer high efficiency and higher power output with little emissions. These engines are diesel based.

The Direct Injection Engine was considered to be the savior of diesel, and there has been a growing market for TDI diesel cars. These cars are perhaps the most interesting in their creation, as they attempt to get the benefits of a gasoline engine, including fuel efficiency and engine power, without sacrificing the low cost fuel and environmental importance of diesel. The TDI is important to car makers as it offers them the chance to produce a car which does not lack for performance power. However, as with any other environmental technology, there are many pros and cons to producing and using TDI diesel cars.

When a manufacturer develops a new car they have to take into consideration all of the conditions it may be subjected to in all of the regions in which they intend to sell this model. This means instead of just optimising the ECU’s program or ‘map’ to deliver the best performance or the most fuel efficiency they have to make compromises to the map to take into account these potential differing operating conditions. These could include sub-standard fuels, extremes in temperature and altitude, differing emission laws and even the possibility that vehicle may not be serviced on a regular basis and in accordance with the manufacturers recommended instructions.

ECU remapping is taking a read from the ECU’s processing chip of the vehicles standard compromised map and adjusting various parameters within the map such as fuel pressure, boost pressure (on turbocharged applications) ignition advance and throttle pedal control amongst others to release the true performance from the engine. It is a completely safe process as it is just giving the engine the performance it should have had in the first place before all the compromises were applied to the original programming. Every engine will have its own unique map and by adjusting this we can fine tune the characteristics of the engine; unleashing more power and in many cases reduce fuel consumption too.

TDCI Remap

TDCI means Turbo Diesel Common rail Injection. Instead of having a distributor pump with a separate pipe to each injector, the common rail is just that. A single pipe (or rail) connected to all four injectors. The fuel is allowed through only when the ECU triggers the injector. These common rail systems run at extremely high pressures (in excess of 25,000psi) so please do not attempt to dismantle one unless you have the relevant experience. You might very well seriously injure or kill yourself!

OBD Remap

In the engine tuning industry, three phrases are often used interchangeably. These are: 'OBD Tuning', 'Chip Tuning' and 'ECU Remapping'. OBD stands for On Board Diagnostic. To make sense of this the word port is important because without the port, on board diagnostics would not actually exist; just as it didn't exist in the 1980's. So any 'OBD port tuning' or 'obd port remap' is just engine tuning or engine remapping completed via the use of the car's obd port.

Bosch Remap

Electronic Diesel Control (EDC) is an electronic engine-management system for diesel engines. Bosch presented the first system of this kind for passenger cars in 1986. Since 1989 it has also been used in commercial vehicles, where it has now become part of today’s standard equipment. EDC combines all control and regulation functions in one electronic engine control unit to which the injection system and a large number of sensors and actuators are connected.

EGR Delete

Modern engines recirculate some of their exhaust gases back into the engine with the aim of reducing emissions. This is the is the main benefit of the EGR system. The downside is that exhaust fumes containing carbon deposits are constantly being recirculated through the engine through time causing a build up of carbon deposits in the intake manifold etc.

DPF Removal from Quantum Tuning Ltd thumbnail

DPF Removal

DPF remaps will now alter the software in the ECU (Engine Control Unit) so that in combination with physically removing the DPF, the vehicle will now run without logging any error codes, attempting any future regeneration, or bringing any DPF check lights or engine management light on the dash.

If you want to tune your diesel vehicle and still keep the vehicles safety and durability functions for the engine/transmission/ESP intact, the only way to tune a diesel vehicle is to make changes in the existing control system of the engine. That is exactly what we offer with a Quantum remap. Our tuning process has total control over all parameters at any moment, and we don’t disturb the safety functions of the car, by deceiving the system.
