      I didn't have to modify any of the brackets and everything was a direct fit except for two of the four bolts in the center bracket which I didn't care about. All I did was extend the pins. Not sure...

      Rears are too for the most part as long as you have all the Passat hardware and brackets, but fitment isn't the best. Bottom half is direct fit and fine. It's the top half that will have gaps on the...

      Head is aluminum so it's light. Might be around 30 lbs and should be no problem. Yard I go to charges $30 for any head. You can get the dual valve springs in any OBD 1 Mk3 too. Wouldn't pay more than...

      Misfiring and fueling problems can kill a cat quick. I'd pull the codes. If it's clogged or not operating correctly, they'll almost always throw a P0420 or P0421. You could try removing the pre-cat...

      You can't change the mileage with VCDS unless it was a new cluster with 0 miles. It can be a lost cause because it may not be the original cluster with original mileage if the original was replaced....

      I'm not. I'm saying you shouldn't believe your dyno results blindly. That specific dyno has a correction factor multiplier that will always make it read higher than it actually is if it's set to...

      Not trying to offend you or anything, but you should learn how an older dyno like that works before you put your car on one and make sure the operator isn't doing anything to manipulate the results....

      Sure. Could be a small leak anywhere in the airlines or at the pump or even just the pump. I was just telling you a possible easy way to find it. I've had a slow leak where the locks still worked for...

      On that dyno, they are supposed to record and set it for every run otherwise it's not accurate. If they didn't have the probe in your engine bay measuring intake air temp it's not accurate either. I...

      This. It's not normal for the pump to run that long at all. If it does, then an airline is definitely broken or disconnected. Easy way to possibly find it is to see which of your doors is not locked...

      You're not going to strip old paint off a block with naval jelly. It's a rust converter only. If the block is really rusty and you're trying to strip off the old paint too, it may be cheaper and...

      Inlet and outlet are the same, so it should bolt right up. May want a new clamping sleeve for the outlet.

      Same fuel pump on a 2.0 and a VR6 so you shouldn't have to. Only real difference I'm aware of is the housing on older and newer versions of the pump, but connector/wiring is the same.

      The tip of it is just bent 90 degrees. Kind of hard to explain in words how to remove it and you may not visualize what I'm saying, but it should only take a couple seconds. Instead of the rod being...
