    Hello, Very interesting and simple video on Dynos. Most of the info given are basic but very important. Not all dynamometers are created equal. This Episode of COBB U should clear up any confusion related to interpreting dyno results, understanding percentage gains, and how to compare data...

    So, I made the required two posts in the noob forum, which by the way, is a dumb rule that almost certainly does nothing to prevent spam. We tried rules like these on the Tom's Hardware forums years ago, and found that they were not successful. Spammers will simply bot the two replies and then...

    My 2004 1.8T now has 239,539 miles on it. It was purchased back in 2005 with 9,500 miles on it. At 40,000 miles the OEM water pump was leaking and fixed under warranty. Since then, the timing belt service has been done three times at 60,000-70,000 mile intervals with the ECS timing belt kit and...

    The graphic/video thing was very confusing, and I didn't know what "platform" meant until I looked it up. Would be appreciated if sign-up was a bit more user-friendly, took 4 tries, and I've been in IT for 20 years! Thanks for the site though, very helpful!

    I'm just curious to know why folks need to run a stereo with thousands of watts? is it bragging rights? I guess I can relate to that. It's like having all kinds of horsepower at your disposal. But really though, all these super high wattage rigs, what gives? Do people think high wattage systems...

    I have a 2005 Passat Wagon. The manufacture date actually says it was made in 2004, so I believe this means the variant is a B5 (or is it a B5.5?) I have installed a double DIN head unit that I bought on Ebay from Hong Kong, one that includes GPS, Bluetooth, DVD, Radio etc., and so far I...

    So I am ready get the rear fog installed on the 04 Passat. I found a local tuner that is willing to do the work for me. Unless I have a ton of encouragement that its super easy, I just don't want to bother with it. On the other hand it does not look like rocket-science. The diode thing is...

    I've searched the forum and have seen that auto rx is highly recommended concerning sludge in the 1.8t. What I'd like to know is how it works. My understanding of the sludge issue is a small triangular filter on the oil return line from the turbo to the oil pan becomes clogged with oil sludge...
