2016 Caddy Power upgrades

Post by DJOHALL » Wed Mar 13, 2019 3:15 pm

So I'm on the hunt for more power. I've a 2016 Caddy 2.0 TDI. I've had it remapped by Pendle since it was new running about 180bhp. Now I'm looking to see what my options are to up the power some more, I've been looking but I've not seen much information about Caddys of this age. Anyone any useful info as links to builds?

The next real gain is to either look at the darkside option of changing the turbo/clutch etc

Either that or get the engine swapped and go the tsi route

Both gonna get you into a few quid though unfortunately

One is diesel and one is petrol but I’m sure you knew that 😄

Joking aside I’m sure that 180-190bhp is as far as it goes on TDI without changing components such as turbo, clutch, etc.

From what I have found I can upgrade clutch and turbo and rod bolts and be at around 240bhp, just trying to weigh up if that power increase is worth the outlay. Any more needs beadwork and bigger diesel pump which is into huge money.

really you need to change rods for a upgrade that small?
