  1. 2 months in with my 2014 SE 1.8t 5 speed, and pretty happy with how it turned out

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Pretty much done with what I plan to do with this car (besides pile on the miles) Small mod list -> tint, wheels, 93 octane tune, suspension I do plan to add the ESC/TCS defeat sometime this year. Eibach ProKit springs for 2010 CC Koni FSD for 2010 Passat (had an interesting conversation with...
  2. Clutch Master Cylinder number 5 - I'm gonna snap pretty soon!

    B5 Garage
    So the other day I went to out to my car, just like any other day, and I go to start the car, clutch pedal -boom- right to the floor! I must be cursed! :mad: :banghead: Last night I hooked up my Motive Pressure Bleeder and applied almost 15psi and absolutely NO brake fluid will flow through the...
  3. VCG replaced today. Pretty proud of myself. Big thanks to PW!

    B5 Garage
    So today I finally changed my valve cover gasket set. And it was successful so far. After reading threads and looking up multiple YouTube posts, this noob got up enough courage to try it. I own a 2004 1.8 manual 4motion. I love this car and wonder what car I can purchase in the future that will...

  6. Pretty Cool Russian Tuning Simulator

    Anything Auto Quite a few cars on there, even a pretty nice selection of Passats! Can't figure out how to save a screenshot though, it keeps saying "must save tune file" ^ Pics posted on Vortex
  7. On the fence about water/meth, let me convince you with pretty pics

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, I finally got my water/meth pump setup fixed, and wow, what a difference. Now when I it the gas in 3rd I can feel the tires wanting to let go at 130+ km/hr. Here's a comparison of logs taken at about 28-30 PSI in 3rd gear, with and without water/meth. In both cases, the A/F ratios are about...

  9. Sitting pretty....

    The Showroom
    Got the 20mm adaptors on the front and brought it done some more in the front. IMO it sits 10x better. Just need to figure the shims out for the rear or get some 225/40s mounted on the rear.
  10. Cleaned, polished and pretty...

    The Showroom

  15. Pretty much screwed, sunroof wont close

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I drove home with the sunroof open as I usually do. Get home and the roof goes an inch forward from the furthest back setting and then gets stuck and reverses. I tried a few more times with no success. Now it wont even move from the fully open position. I tried using the crank on the actual...

    PPI 356CS 6.5" components for $110 shipped, pretty sweet comps if you're on a budget. For under $150 I don't think you'll find much better. Rebadged a/d/s. I just picked up a set for fun mostly. Anyone have any first had experience with these? $110 after microsoft cash back...
  17. 17s and pretty low

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    So for my next set of wheels i plan on getting 17s and a little bigger tires. I'm also pretty low and was wondering if the best tire would be 225 45's? Probably going with 17x8 or 8.5. The ones i will more than likely get are 17x8 with 48mm offset. Plan on getting 15mm spacers upfront and 20 in...

    The Black Hole The republicans so cute and lovable, never divisive!:thumbup:
  19. An actually pretty cool Ford

    Anything Auto
    I wonder what market forces kept this from being modernized. Maybe it turned into the New Boat. This is a neat video of a tractor-snowmobile type machine invented by Henry Ford. Watch the whole thing. It's a video copy of an old film that doesn't have sound...but it's pretty neat. (and 11...
  20. Highway racing with a Mustang...V6 did pretty well

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I did a Philadelphia - Charlotte trip today and about 1/2 hour before Charlotte on I-77 (two lane highway) I passed a red Mustang (2005+).I was going about 90mph. Seconds later I see him tailgating me. I let him go and of course he goes in front and flashes his stop lights for racing.... Tried...
