So A friend of the family has a Jetti TDI, I want to say its an 07. Looking at tuning, exhaust and mileage adders. I would never tune my rig without gauges, but are they needed on a tdi? (Me personally would say yes) Any other TDI know how would be great, thanks guys!

They never made an 07 TDI... The last year for the 1.9 was 06 and the 2.0 didnt start until 08.

Not sure about the 2.0's (mine is a 1.9), but I know on the 1.9's overboost is one of the biggest issues. Apparently the little VGTs on these don't like anything over 25 psi. I've got a boost gauge and pyro on mine. Even on the hottest tune I've never seen the pyro over 1200°. I've had to watch the boost really carefully though!

I stand corrected, just talked to him. It is a 2003 1.9 the engine was replaced at 141000k due to the lady that owned it before him stopped having the oil changed. the new engine has aprox. 26K on it. Michael will a blow of Valve be enough to prevent the over boosting issue? Also what kind of tuning do you suggest? He is getting approx. 41mpg but would like to make it better. (wishing it got 20 though 18 is better than 13). Thanks Guys
