VW/AUDI Integrated Manifold Turbos (August 08, 2001)

In 1997, we launched the 454232 range of VNT turbos with integrated manifolds for the VW Golf TDI and Audi A3 TDI.

The 454232-0001 was superceeded by 454232-0003, then by 454232-0004 and finally the 454232-0005.

The 454232-0005 is a Direct Service Replacement for the -0001, -0003 and -0004.

Last year we started production of a new turbo, part number 713672-0002 for the VW Golf TDI and Audi A3 on the same 110HP ( 81Kw ) engine. One of the design changes was on the turbine housing :

A steel bracket bolts onto the turbine housing and also onto the side of the engine block to support the turbo, so that the manifold alone does not support all the weight.

The bracket ( VW/Audi part ) has changed and this meant a change to the cast boss which supports the bracket; this is now turned through 90º.

In order to use 713672-0002 as a Direct Service Replacement for the 454232 range, it is necessary to supply the correct bracket.The part numbers for the VW/Audi brackets are:

038 145 535 C   to   454232 Range
038 145 535 E   to   713672 Range
