it's all very subjective and as you have brought up, particular to vendor vs another.

2002 Jetta TDI 200,000-Miles (Frankenstein): Is there a way to figure out if a timing belt had been changed, no date on cover by last mechanic. I just got this car a couple of months ago and itís my project car also have another Jetta 2001 Wolfsburg (for parts).

pwendtland, there is really no other way than to change the timing belt and associated parts yourself. Waiting to do it due to say, lack of funds, will only increase the cost of the job from a few hundred $$ to a possible couple of thousand $$. Good wisdom says, do not push your luck with something as critical as a timing belt.

Yes it is all subjective, sort of. In that all of the tuning vendors all produce right about the same amount of torque and horsepower for the same rated Stage of Tune.

Thanks for the reply... I’ve been looking online for parts and I need some suggestions on parts manufacturers (many out there). Want to change timing belt kit with tools, oil pump, camshaft, injectors, clutch and turbo. Also would like to delete the EGR but keep the the shutter valve somehow also will change the exhaust down the road. Is there a sequence of parts replacements that I should do (timing belt first for sure). Also made a typo my TDI is a 2003 and not 2002. Thanks for suggestions from people who know what they are talking about...
