I just detailed the exterior and posted pictures in an album at: http://www.fototime.com/inv/F03DA25E2D58E28 Will add interior pics later.


This is a 2006 Jetta sedan finished in Wheat Beige with the Charcoal leather interior. It’s a one owner car with a clean Carfax. Has 323,000 miles but could pass for 123K. Beautiful rustfree body with shiny paint. Right fender was painted and is a shade off and has some touched up chips and scratches. Rest of the body is excellent with just a few minor dings. Very clean interior with no rips or tears but headliner sagging. Mechanically it runs great. Turbo just rebuilt by Tim’s Turbos but the wastegate hasn’t been adjusted. The hose to the actuator is disconnected so it’s always fully open and thus sets a P0299 underboost code. On the plus side, this way it’s AVERAGING 54 mpg and will get well over 60 mpg on the highway. It also has an EGR cooler delete and a Rocketchip tune so once the wastegate is dialed in, it’s a beast. In addition to the turbo it has a new LCD display in the instrument cluster, set of new General Altimax tires and a new Bosch MAF sensor. Timing belt was done around 220K so it’s due and the cam was replaced at that time. The transmission syncros were replaced not too long ago along with the clutch so it shifts as smooth as new. The engine runs strong and feels smooth while idling, accelerating and throughout the cruising range and it starts instantly whether hot or cold. The steering wheel is on dead center going down the road with no shakes or vibrations at speed, the brakes are firm with no pedal pulsations or pulling to one side when stopping and the suspension is tight. The A/C blows ice cold. This is a car you could easily take to 500,000 miles and beyond and drive across the country today.


Car is in the Washington DC area but could deliver at low cost. Priced at $2,200 firm. [email protected]

That post was from 10 months ago. I've done some work on the car since then and fixed a few things on it. Although I'm not currently actively selling it, the current price is $3,000. What do you need to know about the EGR?

Oh my bad man, i didnt know. I jist wanted to ask you when you did the EGR delete, did you block the exhaust manifold elbow pipe that connects to the intake manifold, or just remove the EGR and close the hole with the aluminum plate they sell.

I blocked that pipe cause i thought i was loosing boost letting hot gas going into the manifold, instead of just spooling the turbo more, but after i bloced it, my car is choking, it jerks like it has no gas,

A shop did it along with the last timing belt change so I can't answer that.
