Specifically for the 1.4 TSI? I am assuming Borg Warner or Garrett but haven't been able to confirm.
IHI Turbos are P.O.S... Learned that on a VW 2.0TSi...twice.The 1.8 and 2.0s use IHI turbos. Not sure of the 1.4 but that would be my first guess.
43k on the IS20 upgrade on my 1.8 beating in it tuned...no drama.IHI Turbos are P.O.S... Learned that on a VW 2.0TSi...twice.
let me guess... infamous loose wastegate?IHI Turbos are P.O.S... Learned that on a VW 2.0TSi...twice.
Right on. The first turbo also had tons of play in the shaft at 115k miles, and contributed to high oil consumption.let me guess... infamous loose wastegate?
VW has traditionally used KKK turbos - which is Borg-Warner. Or so I think.
Interesting - the gen 3 MQB 1.8 EA888 in my Golf is an IHI turbo?There is a Honeywell turbo on my 2016 Passat with the 1.8 EA888 gen 3 engine.
Yeah, that's odd as it's the same engine. I can see the "Honeywell" stamped into the aluminum turbo housing up by the firewall.Interesting - the gen 3 MQB 1.8 EA888 in my Golf is an IHI turbo?
