Thanks Nevada !! My ALH is 317k miles old and is relatively new to me but I have gone over every maintenance item since purchase so now I want to upgrade it . I daily drive an mk6 TDI golf that’s tuned and am looking for similar or better performance if I can.

Easy peasy, search for the guide on here. It took maybe 90 minutes, and that was being super careful with everything. Don't bother with a shop or anything.

Like Nevada, I've done 3 sets of nozzles during "tune development".
A local shop pops and balances a set for $120. If you're near Portland
get DFIS to do them, and if you've already got another vehicle, I wouldn't bother with a "hot swap".
Shouldn't take more than a couple of days to have them worked.

Here's a couple of links for Firads .216s, from all reports excellent quality, and like Nevada says, a sweet spot for reasonable power
upgrades while preserving economy.

https://blackhazeworkshop.com/en/parts/firad_high_fueling_nozzle_for_alh_ahu_or_other_ve_ tdi.html

https://www.idparts.com/firad-p502-injector-nozzles-set-of-p-879.html

I ended up with .230 Wuzetem (Polish) nozzles, lots of fuel and power, but economy has suffered.
For the towing I do, no problem with getting 30mpg pulling a teardrop at 70+mph.
And if I ever get the bug for a bigger turbo, (like I already have, {;o) ), I've got the fuelling.

#1 best mod to go with nozzles is an EGT gauge.
I sugest Auber guages, they are top notch and you can program them to defuel the engine when EGT's get to hot. Trust me, its cheep insurance on a turbo's life not to mention the engine.
Oil PSI and EGT are fantasist, boost is cool but fairly unnecessary.
I put in a set of pp764s with the stock AHU turbo and firsqt hard pull i shot up to 2200*F and the 2nd hard pull i saw it spike for a blink of an eye at 2100F and the turbo melted.
I was being agressing with my QA and this probably wont happen to you but an egt gauge is really easy to install with a few of the right tools and you dont have to take anything other than the intake off to install one.

What other mods are you going for?
If you want to keep it simple go with the 205's and a tune with a few gauges. get some sticky tires and good breaks and you will have a blast!

with only .205s you can not hurt anything from power balance issues
just toss them together yourself

look at the idle compensation in vag-com and shim up the ones that are reading minus a bunch if you don't want to put together a poptester (I just use my porta-power)

I could ship him another one without costing much turnaround time.
Your money, your choice.

My first set of nozzles, my .205, I bought from Kerma and had DFIS build them since I'm local to them. Was happy with them, never had a performance issue. Purchased my 1019's from Kerma using the hotswap option because I needed them on short notice. No issues thee either. Really all depends on if you have a spare car and the $$$ to do the hotswap. Took about 5 days to get my core deposit back.

You're close to both DFIS and Cascade German. You may do well to consult both about a swap since you could probably have it done while you wait if you're nearby.

Everytime I've gone to DFIS, they say it's at least a 2 day turnaround. I'd call ahead before just showing up if you want them done same day.

Also, I've noticed what's on Cascades website isn't always up to date. The nozzles they have listed are PowerPlus nozzles, not ULSD rated ones. I'm sure they actually carry them, but I'd still call and ask.

I just want to point out that there are an awful lot of ALHs running around with "non ULSD" rated nozzles.

Won't disagree with you there. Just going for longevity.

Well I'm going against the grain here. In 2005 a fellow member swapped my .158 nozzles in my 2002 Jetta slushbox for .205 nozzles. Nothing done to them, straight out of the box. Absolutely no problems at all ever. Got great power and mileage until 2016 when I moved to my Passat
