    I've been wrenching my whole life, my wife's car lost AC, and I'm looking for advice. In order to get it, I apparently need to jump through hoops.

    So after doing hours of research on the web i need the PW members to chime in with their knowledge. My 99 AEB is stock. With 163k km and I do have a faint noticable whine from the turbo when I start the car up and drive the first few km. Recently my friend has offered me his k03 from his 2004...

    Ok, the issue is the basic, been already thinking also of getting a T4 Transporter / Caravelle / Multivan, but gotta try cuz I like our Passat. We got a third baby "in the oven" and I've already confirmed that the space is enough to have three child seats in a row. Problem is that we want to...

    since you can use these programs to adjust timing advance on the DBW cars, do you think it would be possible to gain some hp/tq from advancing the timing on a stock B5.5 1.8T ? advancing by like 0.75 to 1.5deg then monitoring block 020 and seeing if timing retard is under 6. is this possible...

    My RF amp has a remote gain control knob. It has been loose in my ash tray for over a year. Where is a good place to install it? It should be a pretty easy install, drill a hole, put the post through the hole, secure it, and pop the knob back on the post. The whole thing is about 2 inches...

    Ok....I just got my car a dyno and I was able to pull 169 hp/171 tq. For some reason I thought the torque is suppose to be higher. What have you experienced from a GIAC chip? My car is a 01 B5 1.8T Manual. Mods: Giac chip, Milltek Exhaust and Samco turbo inlet pipe. Last time I dynoed...

    I installed an FMIC this weekend, pics are taken, writeup is in-process. I also I relocated the DV and eliminated some severe bends in the Turbo Outlet Hose. Throttle response is fantastic, and the FMIC looks killer. Intake Temps are reduced from 60C peak to 50C peak. Knock retard is reduced...

My question is, wouldnt' that be too much for such a small engine? Its my understanding...
