  1. Passat of the Month for February, 2012 - Mister T (Tyler)

    Passat of The Month
    Once inna while, chasing down a POTM becomes a labor of love. I've been after this one for about two months, and I finally got the write-up that all of you deserve. For this month, we're taking a jaunt out to the home of the biggest damned rodeo in the world, as well as a past Winter Olympics...
  2. Mister T's other car?

    Anything Auto
    I'm pretty sure there is no one-of custom turbo install under this hood. ;)
  3. Cry02 Products Intercooler Water Mister?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion So I have been searching around for little ways to get some more performance out of the Passat, and came across this product. I have seen this idea before come stock on cars such as...
  4. Mister T's midnight manifold madness

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I finally got my replacement 034 exhaust manifold and finally finished at 2:00 this morning. Was it worth it? Hell yes!!! I can't believe the difference it made. When I started the car and let it warm up I thought my EGT gauge was busted because the needle wouldn't move. Turns out the EGT's...
  5. Mister T transmission report p2

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I've been debating switching tranny fluid from the VW mineral stuff to redline D4. I figure if the torque converter is being taken off then I should be able to drain 90% of the OEM fluid. The only concern is that it is going to cost me $200 for a case of the redline stuff. I also have a line...
  6. Mister T & Black Betty

    I decided to give black betty her own thread, so I'm re-posting some of my earlier stuff: So, a little about myself. I hail from Calgary, Alberta and have been in the wrenching game for about 15 years now (non professionally except for a 3 month stint at a Diesel shop). Most of my cars have been...
  7. NX Ntercooler FMIC mister - Complete Review (Pics/Dyno)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The suspense was killing me. After reading about this little system shortly after they came out with a "complete kit" I wondered what it was all about? Well, doing my internet research just like every good boy should, I found my way to SRT-4 forums, WRX forums, and EVO forums. What was the...
  8. PowerGasket and IC Mister Kit?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was searching a website this morning, and saw some items that I thought would lower the intake temps for some cars. Now, I PM'ed the company, and am awaiting a response from them as to pricing, and possible gains. This company's kit says that it will provide a 30-50 degree change in IC core...
  9. Intercooler Mister

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Has anyone here added a pump and lines for an IC mister? I know some have done it for FMIC, but has anyone done it for the stock side-mounted IC? This seems like a fairly easy and inexpensive mod that can help reduce heat soak. The link below shows how someone did it for a Jetta. In that...
