      Holy crap. Totally forgot I also used to own a B3 with a Borla and some random oval tip. This might be more helpful than posting my crummy B4.

      I had just a magnaflow cat-back made and it sounded okay. Been YEARS since my Passat has been on the road, but it will soon be getting a 3" magnaflow exhaust made with a high flow cat, because I put...

      For a TDI, at least in my area, thats a great price. For a gas Passat of that condition/mileage, that's too much money.

      The first order of business (After you do what you'e mentioned so far) will...

      Its sad, that I just now got around to fixing this. The car sits in the garage 360 days of the year, lol.

      The more boost pressure you run and the more power you make, the more fuel you will need. The 30lb injectors will start to run out of capacity the more power you make. So keep the boost...

      Out of those two, I'd go with the GT3582R.

      The GT28 size group is a bit too small for the VR6. Goes good for 2.0/1.8t engines.

      I'd hope its the .082 A/R. That would be pretty optimal for...

      You will need a scanner that can read OBD1 systems, most scanners do not do the older OBD1, only OBD2.

      VCDS will do it.

      Vag-com 409.1 and an ebay Vag-com cable will do it.

      Perhaps. The intermittent starting and/or random engine cutting out does sound like a cam/crank sensor problem.

      However:
      Generally, if the sensor is starting to give out intermittent readings,...

      Yes, yes it does. Thank you. Much better than the lest setup it had on it.

      I'll be dropping the trans within the month I think. Slipping in 5'th. As expected.

      Yeah, I've done it a few times. My B4 passat is set up like that. If you're just starting to run out of fuel in your application now and don't plan to upgrade much, you'll be fine with your in-tank...

      The most common thing to do is leave the stock in-tank pump alone and run a second Walbro 255 in line with a relayed power source.

      It is very tedious to get into the VW fuel pump housing to...

      I've had this issue with GAP and ESC supplied plastic "crack pipes" recently. On customer vehicles, sadly.

      Both leaked at the o-ring where it seats into the block/water pump.
