VW Jetta Tdi Turbo Diesel Sleeper rollin some coal with many upgrades
Just a quick powerbrake video of my everyday driver before I pull the
tranny for a manual swap. Has a larger turbocharger, larger injection pump, stage 2 chip,
race nozzles, and 3" turbo back Exhaust. This thing is crazy quick compared to
stock at a snails pace of 90hp. It cannot put the power to the ground with
the rebuilt automatic trans, it will barely hold half throttle before the
tranny slips or the tires break loose. Many more upgrades are in store for
this little sleeping monster : ) So be sure to subscribe, enjoy!

A visual aid to what to expect when replacing the Fuel Filter on the 2009
VW Jetta TDI (A5 - CBEA ).
I used as a reference the Bentley Publishers VW Jetta Service Manual

and share the information at these links.

Mann Fuel Filter for those who are exclusive to Amazon.
