    Hi all!

    I recently ordered a replacement CHRA for my 2005 Passat due to chipped fins (from http://www.alamoturbochargers.com/). The new one came and the VNT actuator seems to be flipped around on the opposite side of the CHRA (see attached pics). I'm pretty sure this wont work but wanted to post it up here for input in case I am missing something.

    Somebody made a booboo lol

    I think I'd send it back, might fit but if not they'll probably give you the whole warranty void cause it's dirty or something.
    Good chance there'll be no room for it to work
