K04 being cleaned

Took the compressor housing off to clean the K04 before installing it

Ran the car a little today while I refilled the coolant.

The idling is much smoother after the valve cleaner, but the car would stall on hard throttle. I assume the S3 injectors run too rich. Still waiting for tune... this week.

Also cleaned the VWR filter today.

Some missing photos from my phone:

AWE DV, good for 650hp


S3 Injectors, assembled and ready to install


Noise Maker Device under the rain tray, removed.


Intake Manifold Support that I cut in half to free the intake manifold. The original triple square bolt (left) stripped. I replaced it with a 13mm hex bolt and it works great. Better access too.

Neutralized the engine mounts today, and re-torqued everything.

Car is now quieter and passenger side headlight no longer vibrates while idling.

Exhaust is less crooked now too.

This is the noise amplification device. It attaches to the end of the noise pipe, and is underneath the rain tray on the right hand side of the car.

Installed aluminium spindle to right front of my car today. Still need to do the other side tomorrow. The wheel bearing was a pain, everything else was easy.

Just had to make sure the nuts and bolts were the correct spec for these aluminium parts. The outer tie rod nut, 3x ball joint nuts, ball joint top nut, and the two 21mm brake bracket bolts were all different part numbers that were required.

100 N.m for the three nuts holding the ball joint instead of 60 N.m

200 N.m for the two 21mm brake bracket that bolts to the spindle.

Extremely Rusted Spindle


Scrubbed the Mating Surface Clean with a Wire Brush


Comparison of Aluminium Passat Spindle to stock GTI Spindle


After Install

How do you like them?

I got mine installed at the same time as my LCAs and everything, so I never got a chance to feel them just on their own when added.

I had the aluminium LCA installed on the right hand side for a week, and even with just that, I could feel the right hand side of the car was much more stable over the road, especially for sweeping turns that loads up the right front of the car. I could only imagine that adding the spindle would bring it up to another level! Will know by tomorrow when I do the left side too for sure.

After this, it's the BBK, which should save another 6 to 7 pounds per corner, if I remember correctly-

Finished off the B6 passat aluminium spindle and control arms on both sides of the car now. The difference in the way the car rides over the road is amazing. Potholes are no longer harsh. In most cases, most potholes are simply smoothed out, and the car is less disturbed by the road surface. Interestingly, it also feels like the car has less feedback because less of the road can be read through the steering wheel. The OEM rubber bushings in the control arm are not super smooth, and has quite some resistance to get them moving. It would be nice to get lower friction bushings to improve the ride quality even more.

I can't test it any more now, because the steering wheel is now crooked to the right by 45 degrees. Alignment is needed ASAP.

What BBK are you planning to run?

I went StopTech up front and it cut 1 pound per rotor and 6 pounds per caliper.
