Hi! This is a really general question just because I want to know a starting point and figure out what is and isn't possible. I want to turbocharge my bug but I'm not sure where to start or what's possible. Time, money and labor are all not a concern, I just want to get some ideas and opinions. What is and isn't possible for my bug? Thanks!

I’m not much for tuning but Malone and several others are available. Just do a search over there for tune and you should have plenty to read and think about.

If you have a 1.9L motor, you have a diesel and its already turbocharged. But yes, as stated, check over at TDIClub. Lots of great information on performance mods on these engines.

If you feel like the engine is a dog, maybe your turbo is not working. Do you have any way to monitor boost? Vcds or another obd plug-in monitoring device of some kind? I have an ultragauge that makes my phone a mini dashboard that I monitor all kinds of things with. Boost, coolant temp, MAF, MAP, speed rpm etc.
