Just make sure it is pre-turbo, don't know if there is an easy spot.

How is the turbo doing? My Passat just started today with a very loud turbo whine. On the Audis I've had in the past that noise means a bad turbo.
Any boost spikes? Does the TDT stage 2 tuning work good with this turbo (as I have TDT stage 2 tuning also).
Did you have to make that IC adapter or did it come with it?

You'll have to fabricate the boost hose. That's why I did the thread-to save others the same process I went through. All the pieces are Ebay. There are some other non Ebay sites if you want to pay double or triple. Quality seems fine.

Mine has a little whine at low RPM, low boost but quietens out with a little whistle at WOT. Basically what one would expect when you call up max boost in a big turbo. My old VA whined a lot worse under the same conditions.

Still highly recommend it although I got distracted by this sweet little 2dr 03 5sp Golf TDI I recently bought and haven't driven it much lately. It just got 42 MPG in town and is a blast to drive!

Care to elaborate on what you've done to optimize these for durability and reliability?
Also, what compressor wheel, etc., do you use in the garrett hybrid offering?

Email Frans directly for details info@dutchautoparts.com .I almost went for the big Garrett hybrid he offers but am really happy with the BV43A (kkk). Unless you're prepared to upgrade those very expensive PD injectors/nozzles, stick with the BV43A.

Come to WV and drive mine. That should make your decision a lot easier. I can elaborate on and on but your right foot will help make up your mind better than anything I can say.

I was in Charleston last may, if I get sent there in the future I may take you up on that. I know I'll love a stock BV43 I just want to hear about people's results on rebuilding the VNt turbos

same here...I've had my bv43 on the shelf for over two years now and I've finally decided it's the turbo that's going on my truck (1749va current) ....I may need to lower my gearing for help with spool time but it's something I had planned on doing anyway...I'll post up here and on my build thread when I get it sorted

I've reached out to a number of the European parts suppliers for one if these bv43 turbos, most of the used prices were around $700-$800. I reached out to one of our reputable USA tdiclub venders and he quoted me a price under $1,000 for a new bv43a oem turbo. They were interested to know if this was something others would be interested in, there had never been one of these purchased new in the USA thru their parts network so they were a little surprised by the request. I let them know that this was an afn/bhw upgrade.

The only draw back is the initial wait is close to 3 months.

Frans got mine in 2 weeks. Have you PMd him G60ING? Thought yours would be ravaging FL by now. I'd be careful before purchasing a new or stock used BV43A in the states. Frans is a good guy and I still maintain our European brothers have a big edge on small diesel engine turbos from their vast experience if not more. Frans told me the shaft needed modified for reliability which his have been done. I did take his word for it but on it goes (fast)! Hey Frans, kick backs are welcome!

I'll take Frans' word for it. His mod is a longevity issue, not necessarily strength.You guys can debate him.
G60ING, is your turbo on the way from the Netherlands yet? The 'guinea pig' says go!
