Default 2013 Jetta tdi

I have a Jetta 2.0 tdi. I want to do away with the egr, and stock downpipe just so I can get a little more power,efficiency, and air flow from the motor any tips would greatly help I am new to diesels and also vw so I dont know what I'm doing lol. Do I need to tune the car after doing these things or will it be fine and not hurt the motor to do these things and not tune it at all?

welcome. A stage 2 tune from Malone Tuning (ECO tune) with a buzzken dpf delete will be your simplest choice. Check the reviews on tunemyeuro site as well as search this forum. good luck, its worth it.

I am assuming you have the extended factory warranty from the emissions mod. So why void that? Now?

Because these stock tdis are weak and tuning them makes them bearable to drive? Put an exhaust and tune from Green diesel or Malone and drive

Whatever you say. My common rail runs fine enough to keep the warranty. To each their own though!

Ok, so if I just change the downpipe which erases the dpf and catalytic, do I need to tune the car just to remove that? I know I'll have a check engine light on but other then that will it hurt my car in the long run?

Yes you need to run a tune for those kinds of mods, otherwise it'll be in limp mode.

A good dyno setup to develop them is 200x that. There's cheaper options if you want to risk your car and possibly end up having to buy a second tune.

Tdtuning and rocketchip have been at it a long time as well but they charge similar.

You get what you pay for. Quality, proven results cost money. Doing things on the cheap only goes one of two ways, either 1. You get little to no result at all OR 2. You end up causing more harm than good and end up spending a lot more in the long run.

if you cant stomach the cost of a tune, don't bother modding your car.

I have a Kerma tune with all stock emissions equipment in place. For $649 itís definitely worth it for the increase torque/power with no need to touch anything else. Itís easily removable as well.

It can be done pretty cheap, no need to spend the big bucks

that was my point yahmon
OP is complaining about $300-$600
chump change in the modding world.
Clutch, turbo, nozzles and some gauges and what not to make it all happy will cost about $2,500-$3,000, and thats if you DIY it.
Cant afford the tune, don't mod. Tune is the best mod of all as it makes all other mods work better.
