Hello everyone,
I have a jetta tdi 2001 5sp
boost and egt gauge
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.
