    I have a 03 5mt passat, I rarely take my car above 4k rpm, (it just feels like i will break something if i do, i.e restricted). So i always hear that you should hear a rush of air or a "whoosh" sound on deceleration. I do not get that. I do get a electrical 'whine' type noise on spool up that...

    Did F4D Lighting just scam me $199? Good evening, I recently went to Home - F4D Lighting and saw they had the LED inner tails for sale. I figured for $199.00 I might as well jump on it as I know for a fact that it's something I myself will never get around to doing. On August 6, 2014 I made...

    My turbo experiences are limited to an 83 280zx turbo I drove in high school, and a few buses I've owned. All of which had very audible and noticable turbo sounds. I can hardly hear a thing on my 01 b5 Variant (I think thats the name for a wagon). I test drove a 5.5 and could hear the turbo...

    Hello everyone. I stumbled across this item the other day: EuroJet Engine Amplification Tube Does anyone have any experience with this? I don't think I would like the turbo to sound as loud as the typical diesel truck, but I would like to hear it a little more - especially under WOT.
  11. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    It's kind of hard to explain, but my V6 sounds just like a diesel at idle. It does not seem to be coming from my CCT, more towards the PS Pump. Just curious if anyone else has heard of this before. Possibly a bad bearing on the pump? The wierd thing is that the other day I'm spraying down...

  16. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    What is that sound I hear when I enter via the driver's door. Sounds like something "charging" itself up behind the dash. Only lasts about 3 seconds and then it stops???
  17. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Every time we run the Passat, we hear water sloshing. We think it is coming from somewhere inside the car, possibly under dash or around firewall. There's no sign of water anywhere inside. Where the heck can water gather enough for you to hear it sloshing as you drive??? Any thoughts will be...
