Sorry for your troubles scrambld but this thread is very informative.
I was thinking about a PD140 but I think now I would be happy with where you were at before putting on the PD140.
So that's route I am going.
2006 Jetta 5SP North Sea Green, new cam, single mass flywheel and clutch @ 187k My DD
2002 Golf 4dr 5sp Indigo Blue, Malone Stage 1 w/ no EGR and high idle mod
2000 Golf 2dr 5sp. Black 240k parts car, smorgasbord of issues.

Again, many have reported great results with the PD140 on this very application. I was replacing a supposedly failed OEM BW turbo....for all I know it may have had another issue or a different issue all together and not actually a failed OEM turbo. I may have put on a PD140/3bar MAP/tune onto a platform that had an undiagnosed problem...?

Never could get the same or near the same throttle response or sense of power, even above 2000rpm's as it had with the OEM turbo and Stg2 Malone.
