    So I've been just driving the jetta around without adjusting the VNT at all for about 500 miles after rebuilding the turbo... I dont have the vag com thingy ... Does anyone know about how much the VNT is supposed to be adjusted? It starts to sound like it's spooling at around 2k RPM while im at around 70MPH... doesn't sound right.. then push the pedal a little and then a little more power and the spooling sound stops... I'm just being lazy...

    That is too high. Do you at least have a vac pump w/gauge? That will show you ballpark, DIY is in the FAQ

    Yeah I was going to adjust it to open up more in the morning. Still don't know if everyone means lengthen/shorten is about the excess rod or not.

    Any ideas about. Adjustment of actuator?my kicks out often and can't find the sweet spot. I made a wrench by slicing a slot and shortening an ignition wrench
