    Thread: Turbo Lag

    1. 06-28-2015 02:32 PM #1


      I have a 1999 Passat 1.8t that seems to have a lot of turbo Lag, doesn't seem to kick in until around 2200 to 2500 RPM. Is this normal for this motor.

      Also at around 2900 to 3000 RPM it has what appears to be a bad misfire, the car will jump or surge heavily. If you use the tiptronic and keep the revs above 3000 it goes fine. Any suggestions?
