    need help with turbo warranty issue on VNT17

    UPDATE: Finally got around to pulling my turbo. Just a bit of oil came out of the inter-cooler and piping. It looks like the bearing is fine and has normal shaft play. I still want to believe the compressor wheel hit the housing during a boost spike, and that was the foreign object . I'm...

    need help with turbo warranty issue on VNT17

    that's what i was thinking. so if the pressures aren't correct then there could be issues of the blade coming into contact with the housing. I didn't know what the tolerances were for this turbo. My 7.3 Powerstroke GT38 had some play when i rebuilt it but i don't believe the blade was getting...

    need help with turbo warranty issue on VNT17

    I'll check the plate when i pull it (it was a glued on plate). I thoroughly flushed the oil feed line so i cant imagine that it would build up gunk after 6k miles when it had been on the car for almost 200k. I usually do preventive cleaning when it's easier to get too, like cleaning the egr...

    need help with turbo warranty issue on VNT17

    Since i heard what was essentially wass the turbine rubbing against the housing and the next day i got the sound coming from the turbo of a broken turbine , my guess is a blade eventually sheared of and became the foreign object. My 7.3 Powerstroke turbo bearing finally wore out after 400k...

    FS - 2001 Golf TDI - Malone Stage IV - 5 Spd

    you can swap everything from a Jetta to a golf.' Airbag sensor connects could be different, but you can swap them. door cards are a little tricky; you have to remove the leather inserts and swap them. probably find some right ups on vwvortex.
