Hello EcoModders!

Hello from Michigan!
I recently purchased a 2001 VW Jetta TDI and have loved the 50+ mpg I have been getting. I have a 50 mile commute to work each way so this has been nice. I am interested in making mods to increase my economy even more. Some things I am planning on doing in the next couple weeks are adding some aero to the front and underside of my Jetta and possibly doing a passenger mirror delete. Being from Michigan I just put new snow tires on it so I expect that my mpgs will drop (havent had to fill up yet) they are noticably louder than the balled all seasons that were on it when I bought it. I'm also thinking of making a bigger intake and exhaust for it as I've read that diesels love to run without any restrictions. I am toying around with the idea of putting a 3 inch straigt pipe from my turbo, out my front fender. Not really sure how that will help but its basically just a down pipe right now due to a sizable rust hole.
Anyways, I hope to find some good information on here!

Hey Shantiwitt,

Welcome to the forum. I was born in Flint and lived thru age 11 in Durand. I have a brother in law who, I think, grew up in Flushing. Have been to the park by the river many times, years ago.

Welcome to the site shantiwitt. Congrats on the new Jetta. I'm currently fixing my sisters 01 TDI due to a failed timing belt. Make sure to take a look at it!

As for the mods, aeromods are great. I've heard exhaust stuff helps. Intake is probably fine I'd guess, but the other TDI guys here can clear that up.

Current project: A better alternator delete
