You could always send me your Garrett--if the exhaust wheel is good putting a GT17 compressor wheel isn't too spendy. Let me know if that is something you want to explore...

Yes, I like to explore.:p

Should it be rebuilt when exghanging comp wheel?....cuz I'd be back to square one cost wise. I respect your business, but you can understand how I'd like to just get the gt17 wheel installed locally and save the shipping cost and hassle.:( I mean, the shipping would run double of what that wheel is worth, I presume.
I understand that giving me info or part# on how to do this is like shooting yourself in the foot, but I'm still hoping for someone to help with this ('GT15 internals upgrade' thread).
It kinda feels like trying to swim up rapids.
Maybe I should just crack a beer and float down a stream;)
YES. I'd love a price on you installing the gt17 wheel. You are probably familiar with shipping costs for turbos, so maybe include an estimate for shipping as well. Oh...and throw on price of 357's with that too..Thanks again, BB.
-B4, U go!

Lol--I'll see what I can do. I'll get all the info I can and then shoot you off a PM. (Probably Monday because everyone is closed today).

I need ceramic brakes for the rear of my 2003 Jetta. Gotta replace before months end. New here. Do we always replace the rotors when doing the brakes or have them turned?

Just wanted to mention that Bleached Bora was very easy to communicate with and everything went perfect. Things arrived as he promised and the parts were less than I could find anywhere I looked, even on the internet.

Just changed the introduction, trying to get thread name changed to something like "BleachedBora's Parts Page" or something nifty ;). I want people that see the name to know that's my for sale page though...
I also put up a January special on the ELF oil. In the next few days I'm going to mess with the format some, since a lot of parts are interchangeable between A3/B4/A4 etc... Perhaps something like different sections sort of how my Sources for TDI Parts page is set up...we'll see.
I'd appreciate all the feedback and help that I can get!
Thanks, and happy new year!

PS Hybrid turbos are slowly becoming available, those that are interested let me know and I'll put you in line. :)

Ugh--it's 04:09 and time for bed--but this is my rough draft...I'm leaning towards calling this page "Bleached Bargains" ;)

Due to multiple requests I've put together a few Easy on the Wallet Brake Kits--these include high quality OEM and aftermarket parts, but geared towards budget conscious individuals that may not go to the track every weekend! ;)

As always, please let me know of any needs or comments you might have!
Thanks,

need turbo

My vnt-15 turbo is leaking oil and I need to rebuild or replace. can you supply parts (& price) for rebuild kit, VNT-15 turbo, and VNT-17 turbo. Might as well look into a upgrade. Jeff.

Parts for a 2000 ALH Jetta.

Had a smoke cloud on the way home. I am afraid it may be the turbo seals gone bad. (Best way to tell?) Right now it is in the teens and too damn cold to work on it.

Any hybrid turbos for a b4?

If not, know where I can get a rebuild or DIY kit on the east coast? I believe I have a k003 (per Tomo).

PM sent--and far be it from me to dispute Tomo, but I'll give you $200 not a GT15. (Deal is off if it's been replaced before, or if you are one of the VERY few that have an AHU engine ;))

February 2007 specials are up, they are only good on the dates specified. Only a couple more days to get the ELF oil at the special price!
These specials came from PM requests--I set the pricing obviously, but if you have a request please let me know and I will think of using it for the next month!
Cheers,

Does it say GT1749? Believe it or not, that's the part number for a VNT15.
The 1996-1997 1Z motors had a Garret GT15. The 1998-1999 had the KKK-K03, both were wastegated. In 1999.5-2005 we have the VNT15 with the number GT1749 on it. The VNT17 is from some of the euro engines...The K03/K04 is NOT for your car. The GT1749 is a Garrett number, you need the actual part number on the side of the turbo, it should say, "038253019C or 038253019A." That's the VW number.
I have a VNT15, same turbo you have now, ready to go if you want it tomorrow. :)

I just received my brake and rotors! Great service Aaron. Guys, let me tell you that Aaron went out of his way to make sure that I had the parts in a timely manner, and thsi meant upgrading some parts at no additional charge. Wow, that's what I call fantastic Tdi customer service. I'll be back for more as my TB is slowsly approaching 85,000 miles!
