      Has anybody tried the AFE Scorcher module on their Passat. They say it fits and works on the TDI. Just curious?

      When I go to afepower.com, and select Diesel, the VW Diesel, 2012, Passat, 2.0L, I get the Scorcher and the intake as options...

      Just curious if anybody has tried it or know somebody who has...

      The dyno sheet for the intake is for an '09 jetta tdi so not really sure what the gains would be on the B7. Under the Scorcher once you filter for the B7 passat then go to the product the application shows Golf on the item? I would call them they maybe assuming its the same engine as the jetta/golf but as APR has stated they are several versions of ECU software version being used on the 2.0 tdi CR and why APR chip is still in development for some of them.

      Quote: Currently we are extracting and flashing ECU’s with the 1796 processor. However, vehicles with the 1797 ECU found in select new vehicles are still in development."

      However they are grouping Audi/VW CR engines together and not being specific which platform i.e. B7 or not??
