  1. Good Price on WIX 51333 Filters (Big Kahuna)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I seem to have found a good price on the WIX 5133/NAPA 1333 oil filters for the 1.8T: $7.19 each plus shipping out of Wix 51333. I ordered five and shipping to OK was $11.39 for the five. This is better than I can get from my local NAPA, even with the shipping.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Has anybody tried fitting the NAPA Gold "Big Kahuna" #1333 oil filter on the V6 ATQ engine? I compared the relevant specs on the Big Kahuna 1333 filter to the #1355 filter that NAPA specs for the V6 ATQ engine. These are the results: FIL #1333 Gasket ID - 62.54 mm Gasket OD - 71.98 mm Filter...

    I have the 1.8T and it was oil and filter time. I had been running the Napa 1333 and this time they were out. so I went to pepboys and got the Purolator L40316. Normaly they cost about half of what Napa charged. Today at Pepboys they have a rebate for $2.48 per filter and they are on sale for...

  6. Kahuna filter for $.01 A/R at Pep Boys

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Pep Boys has Purolator Premium Plus Filters for 1 cent (this is not a typo), with coupon, after mail in rebate, limit 2. You can get the L40316 for next to nothing. Beats paying $8 to $12 for similar Kahunas. Remember, the L40316 is a rebadged Mann - it's an excellent filter IMO.
  7. Kahuna filter for $.99 A/R at Pep Boys

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just picked up a Purolator Premium Plus L40316 (aka the Kahuna) for $1.99 w/coupon. Also has a $1.00 mail in rebate if you want to go to the trouble, bringing your cost down to $.99 - not too shabby. Normally this filter is about 8 bucks. Usually when I open the pkg, I see a white filter...
  8. Big Kahuna Filter on V6, will it hurt/help?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have the big 4-0 service coming up and to celebrate I spent some serious coin on Amsoil 5W-40. I was going to get an OEM Mann filter, but I was wondering if there is any benefit for us V6 owners? Conversely, will it hurt to use the bigger filter?
  9. Installed Big Kahuna and got a big oil leak....

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Like it says, I went to the mechanic and we installed the Big Kahuna and 0w-40 Mobil 1 and then I headed home. When I got home and was lying in bed almost asleep, I realized that I forgotten all about that crush washer on the plug. But then it dawned on me that there never was one in the first...
  10. Big Kahuna Oil Filter

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I just did my second oil change, using Castrol Syntec. I went to the local VW Dealership and asked for the oversized oil filter. Man, this thing is a monster! Makes the old one look like a joke. It must hold a liter of oil in it alone... it added about half a liter to my overall fill...
  11. So did I get the big Kahuna filter?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well, I go and get my car seviced at the dealer today. I mention to him that I know VW has spec'd a different filter for my car. Of course, he has no idea. Well, I get the car back along with a quart left of the 4.5 qrts I gave them. I sense that they probably didn't use the right filter...

  13. Pictures of Big Kahuna oil filter in my '04 1.8T

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well, my new variant just reached 5k, so after reading these forums, I decided to "do-it-yourself" with the NAPA 1333 Big Kahuna (and a Syntec blend 5W-30) instead of going to a quicky-lube. I just went with conveniece for the first time around, and got the filter at the NAPA distribution store...
