  4. Big Turbo Oil Restrictor Size

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    awesome. .035 is what others have recommended to me before as well. Thanks for the input; I'm using it on a GTX3071R. I did a rebuild and used the same restrictor as last time ( I think it's a .045 or .050 ) which is obviously too big for a ball bearing turbo. (depending on pressure.)

  6. Re-PlastiDip

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    peel and respray, and this time....spray the whole car. I attempted to respray a car after about 7 months and it didn't take properly. The new dip wouldn't mix with the old dip and actually created a whole new coat and it looked like shit.
  7. Help me fix this thing

    CEL is flashing due to misfiring. I'd recommend scanning the car for codes, or VAG-COM if you can get a hold of one. That will give you somewhere to start. You need to flush the coolant out, ALL OF THE GREEN STUFF needs to come out. Once it's clean, service it properly with the pink G-12...

  12. Starter ground on driver side of the car location HELP

    B5 Garage
    it ended up being the cable that runs from the starter to the alternator, though I'm still unsure what the blue connector hooks up to. Hopefully VCDS is forthcoming with the answer.

    B5 Garage
    Hello all, I'm reinstalling my engine today and I can't seem to remember where the ground goes on the driver side of the car.... let me be a bit more specific This wire comes from the starter, wraps around the rear of the car, and has three connections. A ground blade identical to the ground...
  14. I've been busy

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So quite a few months back I had decided to part out my wagon because I was just tired of fixing it. I'm not sure what happened but I caught a second wind and decided to rebuild. Here's a few photos to catch everyone up to where I am now. I'll try to post updates as I go along, but if you want...
