Dual pinned my IE crank pulley because I’m paranoid about shearing the key way

Didn't feel like switching to a press fit pulley?

It is press fit, now also pinned AND has a friction shim. It’s the IE pulley

Lol, that's perhaps a little overboard. But better safe than sorry! I have the older one (before it was the press fit, billet steel version) and only did the one dowel.

Added 2 more hangars to my catback today, it helped it sit a little bit higher and not flex so much. Also got backed into while in the new daily when picking it up from the welder

Adding a tip to the exhaust?
(if so, what style?)

So, now that it's up & running, you're keeping the Passat?

Leaving it a single 4” outlet, no fancy tip.



Decided i might as well keep the Passat since i fixed/upgraded all of the common failures. It only has 130k on it while my MK4 has 240k. Going to fix oil leaks on the wife’s X5 then sell the golf

How's the vibration in the Passat without the balance shafts?

Barely noticeable since its on stock mounts. You can tell something is different vs a "normal" FSI but its hardly any worse than my MK4 2.slow

Very interesting. I wonder how much worse mine would be with 034 street mounts.

Good plan....are you gonna mod the Passat at all?
Maybe a tune?

What's the interior like btw? Clean?

I’ll atleast put a catless dp on it and tune it, not sure the slush box can handle much more than that. I have a spare 6 speed, so if i come across a good deal on a clutch kit i might swap it but it is kind of nice not having to shift in a daily cruiser.

The interior is in pretty much perfect condition. I’m planning on picking up some monster mats and an android head unit but that’s about it

Engine harness is very close. Need to add plug for aux injectors and loom over the rest of the engine harness but it’s already cut and ready. Figured i should probably test it before sealing it all up. Could technically start the engine now but I’m going to finish all the odds and ends before firing it

Nice

Are you replacing the (now) broken grille?

It doesn't have the Sport package (seats) does it?
And/or what options does it have?

Will be replacing it eventually, trying to decide if I want a badgeless grill or stick with OEM. It doesnt have the sport package seats unfortunately or many other options but it does have the cold weather package and sunroof.

Ordered an RCD330 for it lat night, should be here in a few weeks. Hopefully the CAN module doesnt need updated since its an 08. Looking for new shifter trim since mine is peeling like every other VW with the chrome

Badgeless looks weird on those cars IMO

I know you mentioned the fenders (rust) before, it's not still under corrosion warranty is it?
Or you are you gonna swap them out?

Had a friend at VW that was going to check the corrosion warranty for me, but forgot to follow up with him. If it’s not covered, they’re easy enough to swap out

RCD330 installed in the Passat, works awesome. Might have to pick one up for the GTI
