Factory fresh VNT-17 turbos from Garrett made for the PD engine in A4 cars (engine code BEW). The VNT-17 is a significant upgrade from the original Borg-Warner KP-39 turbo, allowing you to run higher boost levels and, many believe, providing superior durability. This turbo was original equipment on the PD150 Jetta and Golf in Europe. The VNT-17 bolts up exactly like the stock turbo, fits the stock exhaust flange, and does not require an adapter pipe to the intercooler. Installing this turbo requires replacing your EGR cooler lower pipe or deleting the EGR cooler.

The turbo comes with complete installation hardware, and there is no core charge required on this turbo.  Oil Feed Line Seals are not included with this turbocharger.  If you purchase a new oil feed line it comes with new seals.  If you are going to re-use your existing oil feed line you need to purchase the feed line seals seperately below.  We recommend replacing the oil feed line to limit the chances of leftover contamination or clogging damaging the new turbocharger.

Available below is the revised EGR cooler pipe that will allow you to connect the EGR cooler to the exhaust manifold on this VNT-17. Basically, this pipe allows you to keep your EGR cooler functional.

About Garrett Garret, along with Borg Warner, are the OE manufacturer for factory VW turbochargers. Garrett turbos deliver significantly better whole-life value than lower-cost non-genuine alternatives when taking into account reliability, performance, fuel efficiency and longevity.

Garrett warranties its turbos for 12 months from date of purchase, regardless of mileage. Warranty claims are handled on a case-by-case basis, where Garrett determines the cause of failure and whether it's a manufacturing, installation, or operating defect.

To file a claim we need:

  • Your vehicle's VIN number
  • Date and mileage when the turbo was installed
  • Date and mileage when the turbo was removed

We forward this information to our Garrett distributor with the turbo. The distributor makes a preliminary inspection: if the cause of failure is obvious they will honor or deny the warranty claim. This usually takes about 5 days from the date they receive the turbo. If the cause of failure is not obvious to them they will forward the turbo to Garrett's R&D facility in Los Angeles for further inspection. That inspection and reporting on findings can take up to six weeks.

If the customer wants a turbo from IDParts to replace the turbo sent in for warranty inspection, s/he must purchase the turbo at our current price. If Garrett honors the warranty claim and agrees to replace the failed turbo, IDParts will refund the purchase price of the replacement turbo. The replacement turbo will not be refunded if the warranty claim is denied.
