Do you have a clear fuel line going from your fuel filter to your injection pump? You should be able to watch it and see if it's running out of fuel. Mine has always had air bubbles present (which I think is typical), but never sputters. I should have some time to get out to the dub ranch tomorrow (been insanely busy lately). I'll give you a ring.

Fuel lines seem to have been plugged........... Ran some compressed air through and installed a new filter . Things seem pretty good. Still throwing a 00575 but it doesn't quit running. Thanks for the help and use of the VagCom Josh :)

Ah, so you got that thing, I was wondering. Good chance it's your wastegate stuck. If so use the bike pump trick described at tdiclub. I'll call to see.

Fixed my overboost!!!!!! N75 was bad (go figure) No longer do I hit limp on the highway. Drove to Anaconda yesterday, climbed the pass with the cruise set @ 77 and she did not miss a beat.

I LOVE MY TDI ! ! ! ! :beer:
