Im not sure how much longer. Its been in the review for a little over a week now. Seems some have had to wait for a month. I guess I dont really need to have the check first but do need to see how the review turns out and how much I will get. If the estimate is correct I should have plenty left over for if I get the needed parts from you.

Still need to get me a Cam, some studs (or PD150 head bolts), and purchase a tune from Malone.

Anybody on here near the Sacramento (Folsom), CA that has the tools to retrieve the skc/pin from the cluster that can help me out?

I want to purchase a highline cluster for my jetta. I have a highline steering wheel control module that i will install and set up with my vcds. I also already installed the button steering wheel. Next step is the cluster

You'll probably get better luck posting a new thread in the regional forums.

If you cannot find someone local that has a version of vagtacho that will work, I would recommend shipping the original and the new cluster to forum member jetta97. He did a swap for me on my 06. Plug and play and 24 hour turn around.

Can anyone confirm that the ARP 202-4303 kit is the kit that will work for the PD engine as long as you turn down the nuts or whatever modifications you decide in order to clear the cam caps?

Spec indicate that it is a M12 x 1.75 stud bit don't know what length they are in comparison to the stock head bolts

Well, ARP claims that these studs are made from 8740 Chrome Molly and thus not recommend for diesel applications and that there is no other stud of the same dimensions made of ARP2000.

Would have to get custom made ones per them

You don't need new head studs for this car so don't waste your money.

If you want to save some money buy the PD140 from aarodriquez and get a Malone stage 4 tune. My wife has a MK7 GTI that has a stage 2 Cobb on it and I can keep up with her, at least until 100mph.

You will also need to get a new clutch and a Map 3bar sensor.

It is much easier to remove the turbo from the top and I would also clean the intake manifold while you are doing all of this work.

If you are looking to as much whp as possible out of this setup then I would also buy a downpipe, i went with the darkside downpipe because it was cheaper to ship it from the UK then to buy a downpipe in the states.

I have a darkside air intake for sale if you are interested. It does make a little more power but it was too loud for my taste.

Lastly, delete the EGR cooler.

I am still able to get a minimum of 43mpg on this setup and I could probably get upwards of 48 if I stay off of the throttle.

Lamboworld,
I sent you a message, regarding your intake.
Thanks,

I know I don't need any head studs and PD150 bolds will be more than sufficient, but I was hoping to do something that is not too common on the PD engine and I am not really a big fan of one time use bolts.if it comes down to it I will just get the bolts

I have been looking into clutches for the DSG transmission bit they seem to be real expensive and only needed when you are pushing big numbers. From my understanding the stock clutches on the DSG will be just fine for my power goals

I am not looking for the most HP I can get. More of the most smoke free that the GTB 1749v will provide. I spoke with Malone Tuning and they think about 170 HP is not to hard to do. For me I think that will be more than enough to make me happy

Because I am in California, I will be keeping the EGR installed.

Has anyone had carbon build up in the intake ports of the head? I am going to go through everything when I pull it all apart and give it a good cleaning. Bit because the intake in on the backside I dont know if it would be possible to get to the ports if it needed it. Another good reason to just pull the head

I had a huge amount of carbon in the intake manifold but I did not pull my head so I can speak for that. I used a propane torch and air to clean the intake which worked great. You will have to pull the head if you actually wan to clean it but I would say that it is not necessary.

I thought that you were manual and that is why i mentioned a clutch. If not manual then you are probably good to do. The turbo is actually pretty easy to change on this car.

In regards to clutches, I just noticed that at high rpm, ether coasting or under power I get a code p2711 and drops into neutral. Maybe I do need a set of clutches.

I may also just wait for Malone's DSG tune to see if it is corrected by that. If not then maybe I will swap out the one from my 09 before giving it back to VW

Inspected the cam today. see some wear on the lobes for piston 2 & 3. 1 & 4 seem to be in better shape with less wear

Just replaced my cams and trying to finish up my build. I put the gtb1749, buzz ken downpipe, 3 bar sensor, stage 2 colt cams. My only advice is the banjo bolt on the oil line that connects to the turbo. Tighten it right before you install it. The actuator is in the way of the banjo bolt. It is very hard to get to. I might have to take my turbo off just to tighten it.
