  3. Kinetic FMIC, does it fit?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi everyone! Discard my EBAY FMIC option and now want a Kinetic FMIC for my K04-015. Searching, found this one and I'm in love with it. The only thing I'm not 100% sure is if it fits. I know A4...
  4. Installing Kinetic Motorsports Exhaust Manifold, should I remove the turbo?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well this looks like an hour project that will turn into a 10 hour project. After slipping this thing on it looks like it's next to impossible to get all the manifold nuts back on without taking off the turbo. Does it need to come out? Anyone install one of these?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    How much gains are we talking about with the product. I was hoping to see gains without going to a K04. I was gettting to the point where I thought there was a limit to the tunability of our cars. Just found the exhaust manifold! More power gains!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Damn! This thing kicks arse. I finally have some miles on this thing so I figured I would do a write up. I picked it up straight from KM for $300 with install kit (gaskets). That's a great deal because on the site it is $350 alone. It was a pain in the ass putting it because it's so damn...
