Hello everyone,
I have a jetta tdi 2001 5sp
Mods:
boost and egt gauge
P-flow
Chip(dial type)
Hid 8k
Led clear backlight

Planning doing a egr delete and exhaust system after i get my "wastegate"(i know i dont have one i got a vnt) unstuck fool of soot i assume it only moves 1 inch.

Was wondering what would be best for a exhaust system 2.5-3"? Stainless or not for the sound

Thanks for your response.

I believe that 3" will have clearance problems around the turbo. Of course, that assumes a full turbo back exhaust.

Yes it's possible the vnt is stuck. I'd do more tests before replacing it though, check out the FAQ article on how to inspect it.

Id supposed it was full of soot because i coudnt move it at all. I played with it with chain lubrificant(only thing i had left) until i could move it a inch.
