Factory remanufactured (all internal components new), VNT17 turbocharger made by Garrett for all VW TDIs with an ALH engine code. Note, due to supply constraints sometimes we send the new/not reman BEW VNT17, which is identical except for the smart actuator. There is a provision for the vacuum portion on an ALH, leave the smart portion unplugged.
This turbo came stock on the European 150HP 1.9L TDI. It provides higher boost levels and lower EGT’s compared to the stock VNT15.
Fits the Following:
1999.5-2003 VW Golf TDI
1999.5-2003 VW Jetta TDI
1998-2003 VW New Beetle TDI
Fitment Note: An adapter is required for the compressor side to mount up with a stock ALH intercooler pipe. The 1 3/8″ adapter is for vehicles with stock (1 1/4″) intercooler piping, while the 2″ adapter is for those with upgraded intercooler and piping.
Fitment Note: Some of the compatible vehicles built in 2001 and earlier will require this Turbo Bracket for proper, secure fitment.
