    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I purchased a replacement key fob from a company that seems to be reputable. Had a mobile guy come out and he cut the key and programmed it to start the car. All went well, but when he tried to program the keyless entry the new remote will not program. I have only one master key and that does...

  8. Specialty Tool Program

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Not much of a program but I was thinking that since there are a few special tools needed for some of the common jobs we run into, maybe we can work with each other on making resale easy. Example, I have the tools needed to replace the cam chain tensioner on an fsi and I know others need to do...

The only problem is that my boost gauge will read 18 then I will keep going and when I floor it it will only say I'm boosting around 6 psi. I don't really believe my gauge...
  18. FS: ECU 3B0 907 551 DB with PES supercharge program

    Classified Archive
    If you need it let me know, I have one. $300 + ship should be a fair price being the program and ECU is about 7-8 bills. otherwise it is flea-bay in a few days. if you plan on SC'ing your car any time this is your shot to make a move. :driving:
