Borg Warner model 53039880207 "CR140 Stage 3" Turbo

Please be aware: Although some have called it "plug and play" this turbo is NOT a direct 100% "drop-in" replacement for the USA-market CBEA/CJAA cars.

Click here for an honest to goodness "plug and play" upgrade turbo that fits as a 100% drop in replacement for a CBEA or CJAA

This turbo comes as standard equipment on the 170 hp European spec common rail Mk6 VW Golf, Jetta, and Beetle.  It is also known elsewhere as the "CR140 Stage 3" turbo. In the factory Borg Warner trim. this part number is not listed as fitting any US- market car. It is listed here for reference purposes only.

It is a brand new, genuine BW turbo that is a direct replacement for VW part number 03L253056C for a PQ35/46 engine. Etka shows this as fitting cars with the CBBB engine (170 hp)  in overseas markets. Some consider this to be an incremental upgrade for the USA-market CR140 CBEA and CJAA engines.  While they will install MOSTLY in place of the factory CE140 turbo, they are not a direct drop-in replacement.

Some folks might find another use for them, so we are offering them for sale with the understanding that Kermatdi will not provide technical support or assistance to install the turbo in a USA-market car, as they are not intended for use in those cars.

If you need an upgraded turbo for your US-market common rail CBEA/CJAA car, we do offer a version that is modified to fit perfectly in place of your original turbo! That turbo can be found here.
