    Hi, my first post so please don't shout at me if I've put this in the wrong section. I had oil pump failure about a month ago and finally got around to taking the sump off yesterday and having a look. The 77mm hex shaft has rounded off so I have ordered a new one. I was a bit silly as I removed...
  2. Passat (B6)
    Hello all, I recently acquired a junkyard k03 turbo off a 2009 2.0t TSI as a replacement for my current stock k03 with 167,000 miles on it. The initial plan was to rebuild the junkyard turbo, add a turbo blanket, and swap it with my current turbo. Question: Where do I find the correct k03...
  3. Passat (B6)
    Hello all, My 2007 Passat 2.0t FSI is experiencing some poor health. Fuel economy is very poor (~ 19mpg or 15 litres per 100k) Also, while accelerating, engine revs up to about 4,000 rpm's between about 1st and 3rd gears before shifting. Feels like it bogs down or goes flat kind of thing...
  4. Passat (B6)
    In my searches I've seen it go both ways as far as opinions go. Right now I'm leaning towards putting both gaskets in clean and dry. Any thought or input would be appreciated.
  5. Passat (B6)
    The hatch on my 2008 Passat wagon opens half way and stops. I tried to physically open it further, but it was very difficult to do so. I also am unable to close it with the remote, the switch on the driver's door or the close button on the hatch door itself. The only way to close it is by...

    I swapped a b6 rear subframe into my mk5 gti And I need to find a haldex control module that locks the haldex clutches 100% of the time, that way I don't have to spend a ton of money on stand alone haldex controller. To short form it, is there any haldex control modules that lock everything...

    Hello, yesterday I install a aftermarket head unit in my Passat b6 2006. It's a China radio and when I install the setup everything worked fine. Steeringwheel control and it connect with the car so I could see info and so on. So today I decide to connect the rear view camera. It all worked out...
  9. Passat (B6)
    Hi everyone, I've got some problems with my Passat B6 2006 3.2 FSI (AZX) VR6, which has undergone an engine overhaul at 196 406mi. The problem is, that the throttle response is really slow. After pressing the gas pedal, it takes a long time for the engine to respond. Catalytic converter, both...

    So fresh and so clean. What a difference a decade makes, eh? 10 years ago, the Vortex forums were going crazy with the then-new mkV Golf & Jetta, with their 2.0T FSI engine. More hp and torque than the outgoing 24v VR6 in the mkIV may not have swayed the “purists” early on, but there was no...
