  1. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I am debating whether to install a cold air intake or a catback exhaust on my 2012 Passat 2.5l. Which one would give me the best bang for the buck? Also, by installing either, would it cause the check engine light to turn on, if so how would I fix that?

    This one is too odd for me to attempt. I drained the oil (wasn't dirty at all) and simultaneously there was "venting" noise coming through my cold air intake. The noise lasted about 3/4 of the time the oil was draining. I have a PCV delete to a catch can but dont have the catch can vented to...

    Yes I know I'm a dumbass for installing a CAI on my v6, now I totally regret it but anyway. When I had the intake and I tried to plug in the MAF sensor the car would turn off automatically. Just earlier I put back my stock air box and the car still turns off if I plug the MAF sensor. Will...
