    Seattle/Bellingham has some great drives. I'm part of the Death By VW group out here, great people. West coast would be sweet this year.

    WTB- VNT-17 for 00 ALH. Camas, Wa

    No sir. This is for the alh auto. I'm actually going to sell it. I just found an R32 that will become a monster PD in 2018

    WTB- VNT-17 for 00 ALH. Camas, Wa

    Oh I can't either. This car is just a commuter that I want to be running reliably. My 04 is the fast one. Next year some time I'm hoping to have a compound setup. Stupid. Stupid is what I want.

    WTB- VNT-17 for 00 ALH. Camas, Wa

    Robert, I found a turbo. Danny has an ALH motor lying around that used to be a customer's. The turbo on it is good. So I'll just use that. For &250...can't really beat that.

    WTB- VNT-17 for 00 ALH. Camas, Wa

    It's an automatic, and she has 340,000 on her. The tranny has roughly 60k on it. Shifts nicely. But I'm keeping this car as close to stock as possible, a big turbo build just wouldn't suit her.

    WTB- VNT-17 for 00 ALH. Camas, Wa

    My new to me '00 Jetta has the original turbo in it. At 340k miles on the little vnt15 she's ready to pop. It loses about a quart every few days and sounds like a siren at boost. I know many of you probably have one lying around from upgrades. I'd prefer on with less than 150k on it and not...

    BEW rough idle/stumbling after pd150 mani swap

    Bad injector. Just pulled the code P1666 (number of the beast fault) cylinder 1.

    BEW rough idle/stumbling after pd150 mani swap

    Just drove it to the store and back. Couldn't get it to run normally at all. Last night was the last drive I had with the car where it was absolutely perfect after all the currently normal procedures to get it to run correctly.

    BEW rough idle/stumbling after pd150 mani swap

    Do I need any special tool to run a compression test or just vcds? Also, it's gotten worse. It's taking longer and longer for the rough idle to get back to normal. It seems to be doubling in the length of time needed to rev it and many more shutdowns and restarts. I also noticed my glow plug...

    BEW rough idle/stumbling after pd150 mani swap

    Hypothetically, let's say a friend of mine did the exact same modification and perhaps didn't go the extra mile and clean the tar-soot-carbon off the intake ports on the head. Then let's say (hypothetically, of course) that some of that stuf got sucked into the engine and is now causing a valve...

    BEW rough idle/stumbling after pd150 mani swap

    Started her today. Same pattern. Easy fire up mega-rough idle, shutdown and repeat, high rev, shutdown restart...normal. The in tank pump made its welcome noise when I turned the key. Haven't had a chance to pull the valve cover yet and check the loom.

    BEW rough idle/stumbling after pd150 mani swap

    I have a spare injector loom that I've been saving for when I have the injectors "nozzled". I'll see how she behaves in the morning and check all of your fine suggestions. I appreciate the feedback...I overlook things frequently.

    BEW rough idle/stumbling after pd150 mani swap

    The in-tank pump did cross my mind. I think it may be the original. But I have been keeping an ear on it when I turn the ignition on before firing up. I'll see if it's intermittent in the morning. The intercooler piping is sound and snug. I've double checked it all. It could just be in tank...

    It's not taking abnormal time to start either.
