    1.7cdti 80bhp - 100bhp

    Hi, newby to this website and very enjoyable reads, can anyone out there tell me what the difference is between the 80bhp engine and the 100bhp engine. Apart from 20bhp !!

    I have just bought an 80bhp one and i came from a Ibiza 100pd which is much quicker so was wondering what is the difference between the two is if anyone knows. Would like to get up to same performance if i could.

    the turbo yours will have a Z17DTL engine the 100ps will have a Z17DTH engine, think the letters stand for Low output + High output

    as im led to believe

    if its a CDTi the engines are identical, its just the software loaded on the ECU that's different

    dont think thats right the engines the same but turbos are different i think otherwise you could get the same performance gains from a remap or tuning box on a 80ps that you can on a 100ps, but you cant
