      Hi Arin,

      According to a Audi study program I have read, the 09G is rated for about 220 ft-lbs of torque. The APR tune looks to provide up to about 300 ft-lbs based on octane, correct? Does this...

      Hi wff255,

      The purpose of a catch can is to collect oil solids from the PCV or Positive Crankcase Ventilation system. The PCV system is vented into the inlet tract to be sent into the combustion...

      Ah, I believe you will want to post this in the other 1.8T forum. This for the DI engines, which I believe are significantly different than the engine you have.

      What year of Passat? Direct injected 1.8t engines have the injectors under the intake manifold and look different from a conventional fuel injector. Port injected would have the injectors on top of...

      Most automatics perform this way, always wanting to drive off slowly. My Passat did disengage the converter at stops, but then a TCM update was performed and no longer does this. I think a fair...

      I'm afraid I don't know a source for original wheels. I think they would have just been steels? A lot of people put on Panasports, which I think look killer on these. I personally have Enkei 92's...

      The 1.8 tsi in the Passat is the EA888 gen 3. Main difference IMO would be that the new engine has direct injection instead of port injection. The turbocharger is also now bolted directly to the...

      I would say not original. I think the only metallic color Datsun used on those cars was silver (and beige grey). There should be a paint code sticker near the hood latch on the cowl if I remember...

      Update on this.

      Technician cannot see where the oil leak is coming from; dye was added to the oil. I will need to go back to the dealer after accumulating approximately 500 miles for a recheck. ...

      Haha, exactly. I know it doesn’t seem like much, but I was kinda hoping I was done with oil leaks on daily cars. I expected my old Rabbit to leak some oil, but not on this. At any rate, now the...

      Hello all,

      I wanted to bring attention to an oil leak I discovered today. It appears to be from the rear main seal. My Passat is a 2015 1.8Tsi with the 09G auto. You can see the leak with the...

      Spot on additions.

      For the threads and such, I went with WD-40 just as a barrier for the whole assembly. I used a wide spray nozzle to coat the coilovers and the tops of the...

      Yes, the dampening is fixed on the Type Is. By progressive, I mean that the springs are not a constant rate. So small bumps use a softer section of the spring coil. When you hit a big bump the...

      I believe this was an issue I remember seeing with Nissans in particular. What happens is on cold start, shut off shortly after startup. The residual fuel washes the oil off of the cylinder walls...
