CR170 Turbo upgrade for 2.0L CR TDIs
1 Year unlimited mileage manufacturer's warranty
A Downpipe must be used with this turbo, we sell Buzzken downpipes.
The CR170 turbo is the only true "plug and play" turbo for the CR140 TDIs that we have here in the USA. It's a great upgrade, especially if your stock turbo is blown!

2010 Jetta sportwagen with 124k miles. I bought this kit when it was on sale. I previously had a stage 2 tune with buzzken exhaust and injen intake and I loved it. I was averaging 37-40 mpg with mostly city driving. I had my mechanic install this cr170 and do a new ecu tune. Wow what a great difference! The stock turbo on stage 2 tune would almost just give out at 4K rpm. It would always pull real good from 2k-4K rpm. Now it pulls even stronger from 2k all the way to 5k rpm. Haven’t done any dyno stuff but it definitely feels around 15% stronger and turbo sound is probably 20-30% louder which I love. I’ve only had it installed for 2 weeks but it looks like I’ll be averaging 39-42 mpg on the same city routes I usually drive. I’ve been logging my mileage on fuelly for a few years also so it’ll be nice to see the actual results. Mechanic said everything fit perfectly so as of now I’m a huge fan of this turbo.
Very complete kit! Seems very good quality have had no issues with anything
Totally transforms the car into basically a Euro spec GTD. I will be running it into the ground. This made it the best all-rounder vehicle.
This particular company has outfitted my VW JETTA TDI since 2012. With the new turbo & accessories I’m looking forward to tunemyeuro.com does the conversion.
Everything was shipped quickly and packaged to make it in one piece. the install is pretty straight forward. I wouldn't advise trying to do it in a driveway. Power gains are really good. If you are looking for the power the car needs, this is the right mod for you!
Turbo kit was packaged very nicely. I emailed them on a Sunday, and they responded to me. Called Monday, and had my turbo Wednesday. Couldn't be happier. Only thing I didn't like is that there is nothing that tells you what each part is. I figured it all out for the most part, but a picture and description of parts would have been awesome just for location purposes. But, being as that is my only "complaint" this was to me a great purchase from an amazing distributor.
I have been driving with this turbo for about 2 months. Dynoed the car Oct 10th and saw 60hp gain over stock (With Stg 3+ Malone and Buzzken exhaust system). Installation was straight forward and had no issues. The spool is great even around 1500 rpm. Over 2k rpm and it is really responsive.
I never would have thought my golf would run like that, along with the Rawtek exhaust system, it runs and sounds amazing! Best money ever spent
I have 09 mk5 Jetta 2.0 CR. when my stock turbo decided to break. I was already running a Malone stage 2 and 2.5 buzzken down pipe. With the recent price reduction in converting to the CR 170 turbo I decided to go with Malone stage III and CR 170 turbo. Wow was that a great decision. It has plenty of power and actually inceesed my fuel mileage. ( when I can keep my foot out of it) But that's not why you buy this tune . This tune is for those people who want to Keep up with the GTI crowd and run down the other 2.0 import crowd And this tune has the power to do so. Smooth power delivery, increase in fuel mileage ,and the wicked turbo whistle when you get on it hard. My other recommendations to you is get the full exhaust with resonator and muffler or at least muffler.
