Garrett VNT-17/22 Hybrid Turbo (A4 ALH)
Manufacturer's Part Number: 1700250038

This hybrid turbo is the best of both worlds. The plug and play manifold of a VNT-17, the responsiveness of a smaller turbo, and the improved air flow of a VNT-22.

The 17/22 uses the VNT-17 exhaust, manifold, and actuator, and the compressor from the VNT-22. This provides faster spooling than a stock 17, and far better low-RPM torque than a larger turbo. This turbo can easily run boost up to 26 PSI.

This is a high performance turbo intended to be used in TDIs that have, at minimum, upgraded nozzles, exhaust, and tuning. Ideally, it should be combined with a higher pressure injection pump and improved charge air cooling (intercooler).

These hybrids are assembled from all new parts from one of Garrett's largest distributors/service centers. They are balanced and tested, and come with a full warranty against manufacturing defects.

This turbo will bolt right up to the manifold and exhaust, requiring only minor heat shield changes (can be done by hand during installation). Price includes assembly gaskets, washers, and nuts. The stock intercooler hose can be stretched over the turbo's compressor exit, but this should be fitted to the turbo before installing the turbo in the car.

If you have a stock intake from the airbox, you should purchase the Turbo Inlet Reducer Hose shown below. This will fit on your stock intake and also fit the larger turbo compressor intake (about 2.25").

Model Years 1999.5 and 2000 will need an updated turbo bracket for this turbo.

17/22 Piping Adapter Kit
The 17/22 IC piping adapter kit inludes our Upgraded Lower Intercooler Pipe which includes a correct size turbo-outlet hose and larger pancake replacement pipe, as well as an inlet adapter to make your OEM turbo intake pipe (TIP) fit the larger 17/22 inlet.

For more information on this turbo and what it can do for your TDI, consult the article on turbo upgrades on TDIBlog.com. And feel free to contact us if you have questions.
