• The TDIClub classifieds section is a heavily trafficked section of the forum that encompasses want-to-buy (WTB) and for-sale (FS) threads for the entire world. Due to the demanding nature and fast pace of this section, it is imperative that you know and understand the rules. It is also important to remember that this is the only parts classifieds section.

    Cross-posting and posting classifieds in the regional sections (except the dedicated thread in Ontario) is not permitted.

    Multiple items should be sold in one thread. Make sure to provide a description for all items in your post along with pictures and prices. If you start multiple threads with individual items, they will be locked or combined at the discretion of the moderators.

    Here is a quick outline of the classifieds section rules. If you don't follow these rules, you subject yourself to thread deletion, thread combination, infractions, or posting privilege revocation.

    Thread titles:
    • Put FS or WTB in your thread title. This will let other users know if you are selling or buying.
    • Briefly describe what you are selling. Thread titles have limited space. Be as descriptive, yet succinct, as possible.
    • Put your location in the title.
    • If space allows, put your price in the title

    Title example (single item): "FS: 2004 Mk4/BEW cylinder head - Portland, OR - $500"
    Title example (multiple items): "FS: MK6 fog lights, front bumper, headlights, grill - Detroit, MI"
    Title example (car part-out): "FS: Mk3 Jetta parting out engine & interior - Dallas, TX"

    Thread text descriptions and pictures:
    • All for-sale threads must include pictures of the items that you are selling. One picture is sufficient, but multiple pictures with different angles will help buyers. A picture is worth a thousand words. If you don't know how to post pictures on TDIClub, see this thread: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=286691
    • All for-sale threads must include a description. We don't charge per-word, so be as descriptive as possible. The more information you can provide, the easier it will be for buyers.
    • All for-sale threads must include a price. Auctions and bidding are not allowed. If you want to auction something off, use eBay.
    No picture, no price, NO SALE!

    Thread maintenance/updates/bumps:
    • When you sell something, update your thread with "SOLD!" Moderators will close the thread and update the title.
    • If you have multiple items for sale, update your thread as each item has been sold. When everything has been sold, updated the thread with "ALL ITEMS SOLD!" Moderators will close the thread and update the title when all items have been sold.
    • If you bump your thread, please delete old bumps by clicking on EDIT and then deleting the old bump. This will reduce clutter in your thread and make it easier to read. It also makes you look less desperate.
    • If you drop your price, please update your first post in addition to posting the new price. If you would like the thread title changed, click on the report post icon and let a moderator know what you would like the title changed to.

    Moderator intervention and infraction points:
    Moderators will be monitoring the classifieds section. If a moderator determines that you have not been following the rules listed above, corrections will be made and infraction points will be assessed to your account.

    What is an infraction point? Simple - it's a system of keeping track of user behavior. A moderator can assign a point value based on the severity of the infraction, as well as an expiration date on the points assessed. If you accumulate a certain number of points, the system will auto-ban you for a predefined amount of time. The more points you accumulate, the longer your ban period will be.

    One example of points is as follows: multiple threads will be combined into a single thread, with the number of infraction points assessed corresponding to the number of threads merged. If we merge four threads into one, then you will be assessed four points that expire in 30 days. When you reach five points, the system will auto-ban you for one day.*

    *This is an example based on the current infraction system structure. We reserve the right to modify the infraction system at any time without notice or updates to this announcement.

    Thank you for your cooperation, and good luck with your sales and searches! :)

FS: Used ID Parts 17/22 Turbo

Hello all,

Back when I had an ALH on my car and I was having some issues with my VNT17 turbo, I called up Peter at TDI Parts (now ID Parts) looking for a deal on a 17/22 turbo. I asked if there were any weird returns sitting around, and it turned out that there definitely was one.

This 17/22 had been installed by jasontdi (Wisconsin TDI guru) on a customer's car, but the customer complained about a strange "odd whistle" to the turbo. Jason removed it from the car and sent it back to Peter for the issue. Peter sent Jason a new turbo and sent the problematic 17/22 out to the Garrett service center that built the turbo. They went through it and rebalanced it, but were never able to find any issues.

Peter sold me this turbo at a discount and I installed it on my ALH. Sure enough, I quickly discovered that exact same noise the original buyer had discovered. It is was only under high boost, but never presented any issues in 15k miles.

It is my belief there is a flaw in the casting of the exhaust manifold causing the noise. This is the only explanation that makes sense to me given the fact that nobody (not even the manufacturer) can find a fault in the turbo and that it never presented any driving issues or failures.

Now that I have a GT2260V, I have no use for this 17/22 and it has just been taking up storage space. I am looking to get $900 + shipping for the turbo. I feel that this is a fair price given the use and the new price of these turbos. Please PM me with any questions.

this wont fit a BEW right?
This will work just Fine on a BEW, it just does not have a smart actuator, so you will need to swap the one that is on your current turbo to the 17/22. Many have put 17/22s on their BEWs. You will also need a different connection to your lower intercooler piping. Most just stretch the standard hose from an ALH VNT15 over the compressor outlet on the 17/22. This is so popular, that ID Parts carries this part and recommends it for this use for those who have a BEW and dont have it, or those who need another.

One has a smart actuator, the other has standard. So, one who has a PD could either buy the turbo with the smart actuator, or install the actuator off his old turbo on the new one. I have never personally done it, but I am sure someone on here can chime in about this idea.

^ This. Then get your tuner to turn of your ECU's need for the smart actuator. Problem solved and no effing around with an electronic piece that can screw up...

I've had one or two that exhibit the odd high-boost weird whistle you're talking about.. The one on my 99.5 does it only over 22psi.. It's been fine for 40k so far and I'm NOT nice to it..
Someone buy it this week before I pick it up for a spare :p..

I gave up and was set on a new vnt-17 today. Must be liven right. My thanks to daniel
P.S.
I know this dont help you, but just saw a vnt-17 for $650.
