      great idea! but having a "custom heatshield" that's marked as free skews the overall cost. That's perhaps one of the most expensive piece due to how precise it needs to be. Also, the pipe for the SAI...

      Changed oil, replaced fog light bulb and ballast (running 3000k HID), greased rear swaybar, and set rear sway bar to full stiff. :D

      Never heard about this being necessary. Shouldn't gravity pull the oil into the filter housing when you pour in new oil?

      ha, you automatically assume that the OP is talking about timing belts. We do have other belts.


      OP, sorry, don't have answers for you. i'm sure others will chime in eventually though.

      that engine is probably closer to the 2.slow of the mk4 days. The 2.0t is turbo and direct injection, with an aluminum block. So even without the turbo, the EA113 motor is still very different.

      first question: how did you get the 2.5l engine if you are not in the US? It doesn't sound like you are from Canada either, and those are the only 2 countries that has the 2.5l, right?

      maybe post this on the mk5 sub-forum? this part is specific to the 2.5l engine, so the audience may not have the knowledge that you are after.

      The passat DID have 2.5 in 2012, 2013, and partially in 2014 (i am guessing until current stock sells out). I looked VERY hard at a 2.5(and the TDI) manual passat, but couldn't justify the extra cost...

      Yes, there definitely is, but it's not easily obtainable by the average joe(meaning off the internet or at pepboys). You will likely have to go through certified smog/cat shops.

      problem is that it's extremely difficult to buy cat in California, and all of the online places I have seen refuse to ship to CA. I'm not sure a weld-in OBD2 replacement is easily obtainable in CA.

      WD40 is probably not suitable on this part, i think you want something that doesn't run off/drip.

      In any case, i think the trunk latch itself is defective. I had a 2005.5. A4, and it would do that...
