    Hello! So I removed the engine to replace the timing chains and some gaskets, etc. Now when I have put it back, it won't start anymore. VCDS says 00513 - Engine speed sensor (G28) 03-00 - No signal. Ok, seems pretty simple - replaced the sensor. Nothing changed. Checked the wiring - everything...

  15. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi, does anyone know what is the main difference between these VR5 engines? I have older passat -99 VR5 syncro and 110kw, but the newer one has 125kw. May be there is a chance to modify my passat's engine a little to get these extra 15kw? I think that main difference is ECU, but i'm not sure.
