Hey everyone just signed up to try and get some more info and suggestions on my car. I have a late model 99 vw jetta tdi that is all stock right now. Timing belt is coming up soon for replacment and have been looking into a stage 2 cam since now is the prime time to do it. I also have a 1980 vw rabbit diesel that i swapped in a 1.6 diesel engine and took out a 1.5. Eventually ill get around to turboing the 1.6 since it has the 12mm head bolts.

Welcome! The 99 can get some pretty good results as well. There are a few people who have gotten them to 200 hp with bolt ons and tuning which is pretty good considering the engine was only made for 90 hp.

Some of the 90bhp's are up at 250bhp and then there are others on youtube using nitros to go further still. I'd be happy with 110-150bhp for now myself, 90 is starting to get a bit dull.:D
