I am replacing TB on my 04 Jetta BEW tdi. Directions from Blau TB kit say raise driver side of engine and slide mtr mount bracket out front or back(move intercooler tube if back).
What distance is safe to raise driver side of engine? I am using a high-quality floor jack to raise engine? Thx, JB

About 1-2". Make sure you put a block of wood between the jack and engine or else it can damage the aluminum oil pan.

Make sure the exhaust flex pipe doesn't flex too far. You can make an engine support out of some 2x4s nailed together and a chain.
