      It will be the blower motor fan resistor. What you described is exactly what happens when it goes out.

      IMO, I totally disagree with the k04 statement. I think it adds a fun, yet usable amount of power that's very fun/safe for faily driving. I do agree though with everything else you said.

      I would have to sit down and run the numbers, but from the top of my head this is what I'm thinking:

      It is very difficult to sell a car with no motor. Someone has to pick it up with a trailer,...

      When you say r32 swap, are you referring just to the 3.2l vr6, or the entire awd drivetrain?

      For the engine and labor to swap in a different engine I would bet that it's going to cost 3-4k. For...

      Make sure to use new hardware when installing the new dogbone mount. I have seen dozens of threads where people re-use their old bolts and it causes the transmission threads to get stripped and in...

      Oh jeeze that sounds horrible. How you rev'd up the engine at all since the ticking started? I had a friend do a very proper engine rebuild and he have a similar ticking noise. It turned out to be...

      It's totally ridiculous, hideous, and terrible..

      and for some reason if it was just a little lower I would drive the crap out of it.

      Not driving your car because you are afraid of putting miles on it is like having a wife, but not having sex, because you dont want to 'wear her out'.

      From working at a few autoparts stores I will be the first to tell you to not rule out that it could be the PCV valve. We sell parts all the time that come back in 6 months because they failed. If it...

      I would definitely recommend a new PCV and possibly a new crankcase vent valve (PRV) to fix the the oil cap from doing that.

      As far as water in the oil theres a few things. It could be headgasket...

      I will tell you right now that I do not know what it goes to, so take my opinion with a grain of salt since Im not accustomed to the 2.0.

      I would say it either has to do with the exhaust gas re...

      Although a bad o2 sensor could definitely make the car run rough, it is unlikely it would cause all 4 plugs to misfire and die like that. It's more probable that you have had a mechanical failure...

      Honestly though you had it spot on earlier. Most stage 1 tunes are very comparable and offer just about the same HP gains. It's much more reasonable to buy something at a good price and convenient...

      Hate to tell you this, but it's been covered 98276346 times in this forum- SEARCH!

      But to help out a little- a new air intake will probably not deliver any noticeable horsepower gains, and,...

      If I had to guess, I would say that it was too much torque for that clutch to handle at the track. On normal roads the front tires will spin/chirp and because of that your clutch is gradually...

      The stock 1.8t intake system was built pretty well and is very efficient even with many other bolt ons. Unless you are making a lot of power, the benefit on an intake and new manifold will mainly be...
