Turbo replacement

1103 Views 0 Replies 1 Participant Last post by  kowalsy1
My 2013 Tiguan is in need of a turbocharger after the dreaded P0299 code and having a shop inspection revieled the worst case senerio. I've found a great private shop to deal with to avoid paying enormous costs at the dealership. My question is does anyone know which part manufacture was the OEM turbocharger or even better the factory part number associated? I've found some really low costs on Dorman turbocharges online but apprehensive about installing subpar third party parts ( although I'm sure anything is better than OEM as my factory turbo has failed at 75,000km ) Are there preferred manufactures that I should stick with? Just looking for opinions.

Thank you in advance!
