Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
I'm just trying to get a sense of where the turbo charger is located on the engine to see if this is something I might want to tackle myself.
If your talking about a 97 Vw passat it's gonna be a challange. I have one my self and I have all the performance parts. I just got a 04 turbo off a EVO. It's gonna be a tight squeeze fer sure. I put it on a lift actully yesterday to be exact. And you cant up it in from the bottom. If your really helbent on putting in a turbo your going to need a turbo manifold that fits your engine, a innercooler, a wastegate, a blow-off valve, oil lines to go to your turbo, and for my sake a turbo timer because worth it. teh job will take about a day or two. The job is pretty much impossible to do by your self because every nut and bolt has to fit right. Now if your wondering where all this stuff is gonna be, well it has to be in the back where your exhaust is. There is barely room but it can be done, it's gonna be a tight squeeze. I'll have pics up of mine in a few months. Oh and by the way take off your intake. and get a cold air intake, not only do you get soo much more room under the hood you get better gas and speed :)

If you cant find it on your own, I doubt if you have enough tech knowledge to do that jobb. But... it is a jobb possible to do. Get to a VW forun or do alot of web searching. Here is a very nice link to a "guide" or what yoiu'd call it. BUT You should really run a diagnostic tool first, either your self with a Ross-tech vag-com og at a dealer ship. You should be shure the turbo is the problem, there alot of things in connection to it that can cause symtoms.

Turbos are not something you want to mess with, unless you know what you are doing. Big bucks when the turbo goes south...
Best to go with a good shop that has the gizmos to do the proper analysis of fuel mixture, and ASE mechanics on duty.
