    I have a 2004 Passat with the 1.8T engine, I was driving around town then heard a loud pop under the hood it sounded like a backfire. Now when ever I'm on the gas at WOT it would buck, sputter, and misfire. If I ease into the throttle I can still feel boost in 1st..2nd..3rd gear but bucks and...

    took my car on a 35 mile road trip today to go get some supplies and i noticed it has poor power when put er wide open. runs great part throttle and cruises right down the road at 80 but WOT is really weak all of the sudden. Like when you have it wide open, and start letting up it actually feels...

    do you guys get a smooth acceleration on WOT (or at least pushing a bit hard) from low RPMs? My golf (4 cylinders) is smooth but the passat has always had a bit of a lag when I push the pedal hard at low rpms (especially 2nd and 3rd gear i think), almost like it lacks air or gas or something...

    I have chipped (no idea what program, bought it chipped) 1.8t, with 93k on the engine. Tonight, I did a 2nd gear pull, spiking about 19psi, but when I hit about 5k rpm, there was a huge knock and I flipped out and let off. What could be causing that? I was at optimum engine temp, and use Mobil...

    03-v6-mt--- i get a bit of a hesitation on WOT sometimes. it happens when smashing the pedal right after changing gear (so like when RPMs go from high to low (change of gear) i get a dead spot when pushing on the gaz pedal again). I put some techron regulary and keep up with maintainance. air...

    At WOT the RPMs bounce a little, I mean a little little. Between 3.2k and 4.5k it does it, after that it doesnt do it. I recently put a K04 in and the N75H valve. I am still on stock FPR, ECU and injectors. Is it possible the ECU cant keep up with the new turbo? Everything is hooked up...
