    MK3
    Well I just happened to find this German turbocharger laying around my house, and was wondering if it would fit on a 1997 Jetta GLS 2.0L 8v engine? Just curious! I believe it's used on 1.8T, but I'm not too sure. It says it's a K03 from the model number on it. What do you guys think about...
  6. 1997 Jetta Exhaust dumps/straight pipe?

    MK3
    Well my car is fun to drive (even though it's not fast), but I wanna give it some sound! Since it's a 1997 I still have to get emissions tests on it so I'm pretty limited here. I was thinking of running a straight pipe (bypassing the catalytic converter and keep the muffler), but it goes to the...
  7. 1997 Jetta rattle under the car

    MK3
    Well my Jetta has always made a weird noise under the car. I'm pretty positive it is the heat shield that is doing that. Every time I hit 3,000 RPM it makes that noise, so it's harmonic for sure. Today another noise showed up under the car, this time it makes the noise when I'm in 1st gear and...
