  1. 5 mins to better throttle response (for some) with a 1.8T DBW

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Like many of you I've been experiencing less than enthusiastic throttle response from my 1.8T Drive by Wire. I've done many of the recommended easy fixes.

I'm currently running 630cc with a gt3071r. It was previously tuned by Eurodyne, but the previous owner downgraded the AR and I think...

  8. DBW on an AEB??

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have noticed that my 99 passat with a build date of 04/98 has a dbw throttle body. From what i have seen online at different sites is that the early aeb motors are dbc. Is there something i am missing? Should i be worried that some alterations have been done to my car before me for a cheap...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

I'm confident I can remove the TB and clean it, but I'm unsure about after it's replaced, what I will need to do. Some say key in the "on" position for 3 minutes with hood and driver door open. I do...
