Replacing my V6 TDI CASA Turbo at 240,000 km.
Today I acquired a direct replacement for my VW/Garrett Turbo charger to replace mine which is showing signs of wear. That wear being in the Variable Geometry hardware which is internal to the exhaust side and unable to be lubricated. As a result wear and deterioration is unavoidable.
The replacement is from Denco Diesel in Wagga Wagga NSW, thanks going to our resident accountant and price checking expert, Seafarer28 (aka Tony B). The price from VW for Part Number 059 145 722 R was AU$ 3,790.00 plus 10% GST (Tax), where this unit, although being a Garrett, makes no mention of VW or any part numbers except the Garrett # which is 776470-5003W and sells for the price of $1,710.00 or 45 % of the OEM cost. By the way the Denco price included GST and delivery.
Thank you Tony, another fine mess you have rescued me from...
