This Saturday night I plan to show my TDI at VW-Night at Superdawg in Wheeling, IL hosted by Northeast Illinois Volkswagen Association (NIVA). I'm dragging my wife along; she likes hot dogs.

I'll also be showing my TDI at VW-Fest 2018 at Volkswagen of Crystal Lake, IL on Sept 16. It's also hosted by NIVA.

Default 2nd Place Mid Water Cooled

Today my Northeast Illinois Volkswagen Association had their annual VW-Fest at Volkswagen of Crystal Lake. My TDI won 2nd place in the Mid Water Cooled (1999-2008) class.

Default My 1970 VW Type 3 Squareback - Birdie

I know it's not a diesel... And NO, I'm not going to put a diesel in it...


Last month I purchased a Cobalt Blue 1970 VW Type 3 Squareback, which I plan over time to have restored. I bought it off a guy from California. The link to my new-to-me Squareback nicknamed "Birdie" is in my signature.

Nice find! And a hearty well-done on the NIVA award!

Mom used to have a squareback for a few years before she got her beetle in '74. Wish she had kept it.

Donna loves your squareback, they had one when they were kids. Maybe you will drive it up to Kirk's one of these years

Ugh! My TDI has been consuming oil for a bit over a year now and has increased lately. There's no leaks that I can find either on the skid plate or the garage/driveway. Today while putting on the snow tires/wheels, I checked to see if I could extract any oil from my FMIC, and I certainly did. Bummer!! I've ordered a new 17/22 turbo, which is on back-order. I'll plan to do the swap in about 2,000 miles when I hit the 150,000 miles oil change interval.


Nothing like putting money into a 16 year old car. I'm hoping that the new 17/22 turbo won't have the annoying chirping/hiccups that I usually experience when going through its paces. I have a feeling the leaky turbo might be my own fault. I wasn't making sure I hit ~2,400 rpm before each shift, though I do now. I got about 10 years from the current 17/22 turbo.

Sucks to hear that your 17/22 was leaking oil. Have you considered going with a newer turbo instead of sticking another 17/22 in your car again? Especially if the 17/22 is on backorder

You might wanna talk withe the guys at Pioneering Performance in the UK? they have custom exhaust housing made that would line up with your 17/22 exhaust, so you wouldn't have to change anything there. They just joined TDIClub, but it looks like they've been doing this for quite sometime.

Another option would be a GTD1752/56VRK turbo. I can pretty much guarantee that it will spool faster and still have plenty on the top end. Granted it wouldn't be as easy to install as the Pioneering Performance turbo option, but you'd have the latest and greatest in turbo technology.

Just something to think about before you commit to another turbo for 10+ years.

The back-order is only until the end of the month according to the place I'm purchasing from. Unless absolutely necessary, I don't plan to do the swap until the weather warms again, and by that time I should be at the next oil change interval.


I don't really "need" the latest technology, especially since Pioneering Performance in the UK is so new and I would be embarking within the avenue of the unknown with them (their website isn't even functioning yet), I don't want to spend the time/money to change/modify other parts, and I don't want to have to get a new tune. That's the reason I decided to stick with the 17/22. My perspective might have been different 5 years ago, but now I'm just in maintenance mode and trying not to put too much into it. I would rather get my Squareback restored.
