ETA: oh, and he'll talk with you for quite a while while you're dropping the parts off, real friendly guy.
And yet another recommendation - I have heard nothing but good things about Dave and his work. Thanks!

Does anyone here have or know of someone with a good BEW for sale?

The car has a manual transmission and 200k miles. The previous owner most likely didn't change oil frequently enough.
Why are you condemning the entire engine?

Update for all on John's Auto Parts. They are closing at the end of the year. Things are going for super cheap, no core charge, etc. I grabbed the BEW block that was there, but left the turbo which was good. Car was in there for piston-valve touchy syndrome. It looks like someone tried to use a 2.0 ABA timing belt on it.

I paid 60 for the block, and my buddy left there with a 6.0 LS and 4L80 for 200.

Hi all,
I have some left over parts if anyone is in need.
https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/d...337090127.html. It would be best if you reply to the CL post. Mention TDI Club so I know it is one of my fellow members.

But it looks like many of you stocked up and John's

Coworker has 2002 Beetle TDI with failing 01M. I am thinking of buying it from him. What do you think it is worth? 170,000 miles

500-750 bucks if it's still driving, 300 if it isn't driving

got a good EGR code 02j you could have for whatever they're worth. 150?

I'll take it off your hands if Chris doesn't.

What are they even worth? haha
Also weren't you southeast of the cities before?


Got the golf parked for the winter, gonna tear into it soon. Made the 0A6 axle shafts too long and they bottom out before the suspension. Oops. Also plan on reworking the turbos to fit the transfer case in there. Might tack on a third. Got an hx40 that would pair up nicely with what's already on there. Oh right, compression ratio's coming down, too. Going to just delip the bowls and round the corner a bit, all with a wood router.

I'm kinda having dirty thoughts of returning the car to stock, though.
Oh well, may look for another one to assume 'backup car' status.

Not sure. I could use it on a car I have in the shop right now.

No, I've been up north of the cities for 10years now.

Hi guys. I have an interesting question. I have a very low mileage gt1749va that I got for free. I am weighing my options for putting it in my 03 Golf alh TDI. If I'm not mistaking, I need an exhaust manifold from a b5 Passat TDI? I have an earlier manifold but the mounting flange is rotated and I cannot mount the turbo this way. Here's the question. Is it possible to pull the guts out of the 1749 and put it on the vnt15 manifold? Kinda need to sort this out as my vnt15 is junk and I need to sell my car. �� Thanks for any help you can offer.

if you're just selling it don't bother trying to shoehorn the wrong turbo on it, stock turbos go relatively cheap. Hell, I left one in the junkyard almost all the way unbolted a couple months ago.

That car is long crushed. It was sorry when I looked at it a month ago, and Johns is closing for good in a week. I pulled the KP39 of the BEW beetle and sold it at that time, unfortunately that would have been a good turbo for you to throw on there.

And if that transmission isn't claimed already, I may be interested. Depends on how this shift tower rebuild goes on my daily. It will save me from pulling a gasser one and seeing what it takes to transfer diesel final drive over.
