I know Wetterauer, Upsolute, and Bully Dog all have upgrades for the TDI. I'm sure there are many more. There are a lot of TDI-specific forums out there.

FACT: VW is bringing the V-10 diesel Toureg to US sales lots for 50 state sales 10/06 to 10/06 after the low sulpher pumps are in the system of the US fuelers. This gives VW a 3 month window to sell in all 50 states for 3 months and after that it will be just the 45 state EPA Nazi propaganda!!!! The Toureg is the early 07 model and there is another later 07 model both diesels though!!! Read more in Edmund's.com on the INSIDE LINE slot. The diesel invasion has begun more have to be coming from Dr. Z and Company...

I think the V10 TDI is going bye-bye. The Touareg is going to be offered with a 3.0L V6 TDI in '09 or '10. As cool as the V10 was, it was really overkill for that vehicle. Not to mention the fact that the newer engines have a much more sophisticated fuel injection system.

Audi's 4.2 TDI V8 has more power AND torque than VW's V10. Let's get back on topic here...16v TDI, four cylinder engines.

For one, I'm really excited at these new 16v 2.0L TDI models. I'm seriously thinking of getting a new Jetta SportWagen. Even after the miserable experience I had with my '00 GTI (gasser). I'm hoping VW has improved its quality, and the fuel economy speaks for itself.
