The VNT17 turbo is the most popular turbo upgrade for your 1.9 TDI ALH or BEW Volkswagen diesel engine. Free shipping in Canada is available on all our products.

The VNT17, also known as the GT1749vb is a popular Garrett turbo upgrade. The GT1749vb is the stock turbo for the European PD150 1.9 TDI ARL engine code.

This turbo can act as a simple replacement, or can be accompanied with supporting mods if you are looking for more aggressive power goals. A tune is recommended but not needed for the VNT17 turbo*.
*You will need to tune out the CEL related to the smart actuator if you have the BEW engine.

The GT1749vb is a 100% bolt-on option for the BEW, but you will need an adapter for the piping on the ALH . It works with the stock downpipe.We strongly recommend to order a braided steel oil feed line and gasket kit for the installation. For the BEW, you will also need to delete the EGR, or fit a special EGR pipe if you want to keep the EGR. It is fully balanced with an actuator that is precisely calibrated – ready to install.

Max safe Boost : 1.6 BAR or 24 PSI
Max power target : 170-180 bhp
Engine options : ALH, BEW


All our turbos are made in the EU from new quality components, except the turbine and compressor housing that are reman.
