  1. I Built A Heat Shield For My AWM

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I had been doing a lot of work that involved taking the stock air box out and removing/installing it was a major pain. So I decided to put a cone filter on for the time being. Well, I loved the sound of the engine/diverter valve too much to go back to stock, so I built a heat shield. I think it...

    B5 Garage
    Hey everyone! I've been having this problem for a couple days now.... when I step on it, it will hit desired (set) boost but then fall off a good ten pounds and continue to fall as the rpm's climb. I've done a boost leak test, no leaks. I've checked vacuum lines to BOV and Waste-gate...

  9. '84 Porsche Getting New Life in eBay BUILT Competition

    Anything Auto
    Gearheads can debate until they throw a rod, but the fact remains that Porsche made a better track performance car than either AMC or Chevrolet did between the 1960s and 80s. That Porsche? The 911. That’s why Michael Essa and Nick Richards, co-owners of GSR Autosport, just might have a leg up...

    So after 3 days of wrenching and fabricating, I got my new 3 in exhaust system made, and holy shit what a difference! Full boost comes on at about 3800-4000 instead of 5000 RPM. Also, now it'll boost well past 25 PSI. For the first time I actually had to let off the throttle to keep from...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well my wife's 2000 Passat (ATW and tip) was running SLOW. Stepping on the gas was embarassing. I hooked up my pressure gauge and my thoughts were confirmed, HORRIBLE boost leak. It would spike at 3psi and die immediately. So today I spent $6.49 at the local hardware store and made this: It...
