    Just wondering if anyone with a B5.5 has a FMIC set up. I was searching the forums and saw most people used ebay kits and were happy with them. Has anyone used this kit? Bolt on Aluminum Bar Plate Turbo Intercooler Piping 96 01 VW Passat A4 B5 1 8T | eBay I'm also guessing it won't be an...

    SOLD!!! Fits 98-maybe 2003 1.8T. Also most A4 b5/b6 1.8T. As long as your stock hose clamps on each end, this will fit. A couple of little gouges from hose clamps over the years and darker due to oil exposure. May clean up, but haven't tried yet. $45 shipped conus only or apo.

    Hey all, I got the hard piping figured out, but I need to figure out what I need for charge piping. Decided to go with 2" aluminum charge, 2.25" aluminum hard piping. Anyone that's done their own custom piping or have an ebay kit that can tell me what their charge piping (from turbo to...

    Besides a front mount or those super expensive side mounts, what other options are there for intercoolers? Something around 4-500$ is reasonable I think, but not 6-700$+ Anybody know of anything on ebay or a company that's reasonable??

    I noticed oil leakage on the intercooler hose at the connector, lower driver side. When I disconnected the hose a small amount of oil ran out. Does this indicate a bad pcv valve? Or maybe a bad turbo? I have not seen any smoke coming out of the tailpipe, but maybe I'm not looking behind me...

    Hi all. What intercooler do you guys use for the G2 supercharger kit, if any? Since it's a roots type, I would assume it would create large amounts of heat, and I really wouldn't feel comfortable running it without at least some sort of intercooler. Are there any that don't require large amounts...

    I have a 2012 passat tdi comfortline with sport package, which I bought brand new. Now has almost 50000km on it. Coolant began disappearing recently with no visual leaks or drips. Dealer after 3 inspections has now told me the coolant is leaking into the intercooler. Still under warranty and...

    Hi all, 2003 1.8t AWM 117k. Background info: about two weeks ago I started to hear a hissing sound and had a slight hesitation upon quick acceleration. Soon had a P0172 code with it so started the search for my leak. Hadn't had the chance to find it before yesterday while accelerating...

    I have had a rash of blowouts of the hose connecting the intercooler to the intake manifold when I get on the gas. When I step on it there is a pop and the connector with the spring clip pops out and I do not get the boost from the turbo. Does anybody have any insight? Thanks for the help.

    Long story short, New England roads are VERY slippery, especially when left unsanded/unsalted after recently having been paved. Car rode up the curb and onto a 1ft rock where it came to rest, perched on the front driver side corner of the car. Since the car does start, but almost immediately...

    I have done some checks about getting a new Turbo to intercooler hose for my 02 passat estate BUT the part number is wrong. The correct part appears to have TWO Volkswagen style clip/connectors where the one on my engine only has the clip on the TURBO end. The other end is a jubilee style...

    The K04 is ready to go in. Currently sourcing the Giac PC16, matching injectors, AFPR (for 2.8 bar). Using gutted downpipe (later 3" DP) and delete the main cat. How about the intercooler? Can I wait with it and run the stock for now? I have the same setup on my 1998 A4, put a Godspeed 20x6x2.75...
