    Widest tire fitment (With coilovers)?

    I recall that running 245/40/17 on our cars is possible with the stock suspension setup. On my 18" wheels, what is the widest tire I could fit? Today I became curious about this because of two things that would likely give me extra clearance to fit a wider tire: 1) I am running -2 degrees of...

    Your experience with subframe collars?

    Although the clunking had gone away completely after installing my Tyrolsport subframe collars, I struggled and fought with the now uneven camber between my left and right front wheels. For the longest time (and after many alignment attempts), I believed that one of my spindles were bent, but...

    K04 missing low end torque

    Previously, I had a driveability issue caused by a loose ignition coil ground point, giving the car intermittent power, almost like the turbo didn't spool up (but it did). The ground issue is now fixed, but I could no longer spin my tires even with modest throttle off the line like I could...

    Brake Pad Choices for Stoptech Big Brake Kit?

    I have been running the Stoptech ST-40 Big Brake kit for years and quite happy with its stopping performance and pedal modulation. However, the current pads I use create a ton of brake dust and squeak badly, which cakes up my calipers quickly and prevents the pads from sliding freely. This...

    FS: K04 Turbo (Needs Rebuild)

    Bought this K04 turbo years ago. Seller was dishonest and turbo turned out to be in need of a rebuild (shaft play). By the time I had all the parts ready to do the K04 install, it was too late to pursue the seller for a reimbursement. Selling as-is. PM me if interested. It's a K04-0064 with...

    What’s the last word on DM’s K04 tune?

    So, I am back after a long hiatus. Previously, I had issues with my engine not delivering power intermittently. This happened after I had my K04 installed and the DM K04 tune flashed. Basically, it had a a very annoying intermittent power issue and the whole car was fine mechanically, but a...

    Faulty MAP harness or sensor?

    Has anyone experienced a faulty MAP sensor or MAP harness? If so, what did it drive like? I am chasing a problem which I suspect could be a bad MAP sensor or harness, and not quite sure how to verify it.

    Doors unlocking themselves after locking (sporadic)

    Random Power Delivery Issues

    I have a full K04 turbo setup in my FSI MkV since some time ago. It was working perfectly (plenty of torque, excellent powerband, etc.) in the beginning, until my intercooler outlet hose and throttle body pipe popped loose a few times during a hard pull. Here is what the car drives like after...

    Passat aluminium spindle help needed

    I am installing a set of aluminium front spindles from the B6 Passat this weekend. Problem is, I can't find the torque spec for the shouldered nut (different than on the MkV) that fastens the outer tie-rod to the aluminium spindle. Could someone point me in the right direction?

    Which brake caliper to buy?

    I am looking to upgrade my front brake calipers (again). It's a long story, but previously, I had the Stoptech 328mm x 28mm two piece big brake kit. I still have a very nice set of pads for them, but I am looking for something different this time. It's not a priority to be able to use the...

    Stock injectors with K04 tune?

    I have the Unitronic K04 tune now on my K04 and S3 injectors, and am returning back to the factory K03 and stock injectors. Is it OK to swap it back to the K03 and stock injectors myself and drive the car with the Unitronic K04 tune on it to the dealer to get it reflashed? It will run rich...
