    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

    Hello friends, just finished a mani swap and EGR system delete. Car ran amazingly well first two days, no noticeable difference other than the hard shutdown due to lack of anti-shudder valve.

    Sheba the one-owner BEW

    I've had this since her very first CEL and will probably die with my name being the only one on the title. Just added a set of Eibach sport springs and a freshly refinished set of Aristos. I dig it hard.

    335d compound setup on a BEW

    I love my BEW, and it's almost time to replace the turbo. I'm curious if running the small and large turbos from a 335d as a compound setup on a BEW would work? I'm aware a LOT of custom work would have to be done, but I want to know the club's thoughts on this. It seems that every turbo I look...

    Idparts front wheel hubs

    I've done my research before posting. None of the wheel hub/bearing replacement/comment threads mention where hubs were purchased. My mechanic recommends original vw. But they cost around $190 per side. Idparts has what they claim are "OE VW" for $49 each. They say they purchase in bulk and the...

    Pre-lube systems, full oil pressure before startup!

    I work in the maritime industry and every boat ice ever worked on uses a pre-lube system to pressurize the oil system before the crank turns over. It's no mystery that the number 1 cause of engine wear is startup. Here in lies the question...is anyone currently using or has anyone ever used a...

    My little Sheba

    After months of searching I finally found a new set of shoes. I found this set of Aristo wheels today for $220. 2 of them are pretty curb munched. But nothing a wheel restorer can't fix. I'm stoked, just wanted to share. Big plans for this little car. Had her for almost 12 years ...

    Timing belt success. Thank you to all members.

    I posted a thread a few weeks ago regarding timing belt service and got a lot of responses from many members. I just wanted to say that I got through it Friday night and it was a success. It took roughly 7 hours and a reset of the engine's timing (the motor stopped dead in its tracks while hand...
