      OK. That's just the air filter duct work. I have that figured out. I'm talking about the intake manifold. It seems the IE piece has the runners coming out at a right angle rather than the stock unit...
    2. Mod IE intake to work with a hydro PS pump

      Has anyone modded a IE intake manifold to work with a hydraulic P/S pump? I can't see where that would be too difficult.

      I know the PCV valve is junk. Would that be causing it to draw oil in?

      I get the tire and brake part. I see old Minis at the track with maybe 175 width tires absolutely spank cars with tires twice as wide. But also a wider tire will shorten stopping distance. If all...

      This will be general street use. No competition. I just want to be able to take a clover leaf at 65-70 mph with no issues. The only real weight loss will be some exhaust removal. I do realize the...

      How much power are you looking for? Just a CAI and opened exhaust will net you at least 10 hp. If not 15. Since you are straddled with an automatic, it's going to get tough as most of the hp gains...

      Oil in spark plug tubes

      Hi all! I just changed the spark plugs in my car. All but one tube had an excessive amount of oil in it! Put new plugs in and started it up. Killed a lot of mosquitoes for about 20 seconds as the oil...

      I went back to 5W-30 after one change with 0W-40. Just because I had a filter collapse in -30 degree temps. Was it the oil? The filter? Not sure but, i've never had a filter collapse in -20 to -30...

      More like -30 air temps. I don't care if 0W-40 will "pour" at -59 degrees. Molasses will to but might take a week to leave the bottle.

      It means the "clock" has counted down to zero on your service interval. You can reset it on your message center by going through the menu. It also means the dealer didn't reset it. Bums!

      Update. I did an oil change yesterday. Found the filter had collapsed. Pretty bad! I put in 5W-30 Moble1. Not that that makes a big difference. But, no more oil pressure warning light!

      Why replace the engine? Just replace all the springs and be on your way. Or was there other damage?

      The rev spike at start up going away below 35 degrees (F) is normal. As for your engine shutting off, that isn't normal. Does your CEL or EPC light come on? I have had random issues in the past wit...

      I think you just hit the nail on the head. That is classic FPR (Fuel Pressure Regulator). I'm 99% certain that is it. Change that out and report back.

      I have had the same issue with my B7 Passat. 2.5L I5. I posted it in the B7 forum. Oil pressure warning. It started when we had -30 f temps. It does it mostly when the engine is cold and like you...

      I just saw this. I see them now and then for $4-5k in similar shape. I hope you didn't pay $8,500.

      Do any of you think maybe it's intake noise? My car has done the same since day one. But, you can hear the intake pulses. Off idle to about 2,500 rpms or so. It's cool! Enjoy the five cylinder! This...
