B5.5 Wagons
Been off the forum for a while as I'd sold my 2004 black passat high line anyway the sale didn't happen so the car was dispatched to the body shop for 2 new front wings. Also in the mean time I've also bought a 2005 silver passat trend line which is one owner from new with a full service history. So far for it I've bought coil overs, a stubby ariel and a nice set of 18" BBS to follow.

This mornings work....setting the FK coilovers to the final height....

Removal of the top arm pinch bolts took a while as the bolts had never been out before in 126K the only solution was a bit of heat and a new set of top arms on both sides....

And as I had no new pinch bolts available I ended up doing this as a temporary measure.....

The next job is to get my black highline Passat back into my garage to finish the engine, sort out the brakes and get it back on the road hopefully with around 230whp....

Nice looking wheels. Are they RXs? Just picked up some RGRs for my passat.

Looks good. I just lifted my B5V. Installed Rough Road suspension springs, and Bilstein HD struts. It is a 4mo, though.

Purchased an aftermarket window regulator kit for the passat......what a waste of time. Anyway an oem unit will be ordered tomorrow. Also fitted a ported inlet manifold and Allard EGR delete pipe, carried out an oil and filter change and fitted new wiper blades.

Fitted the oem regulator what a difference compared to the aftermarket one.

Also fitted a Tdi-tuning box to the car.....the increase in power is very linear making the car drive better.

Ordered a newmans pd camshaft for the car today. It has slightly more lift over the one i have fitted in my black passat. So it should provide a bit more power����

leon10tagg October 14th, 2015 14:08

My new PD cam....its a 9.5mm lift version compared to the old one of 9.31mm lift. This one will be fitted to the black Passat so that its 9.31mm cam can be sent back for repair, as there appears to be a small piece of chilled iron missing from the injector lobe. Then the returned 9.31mm lift version will be fitted to the silver Passat along with the uprated smic and hybrid turbo. I'm also looking to purchase a set of +80 DSSR nozzles from United Diesel to finish the engine off on the black passat.

Recently I've been spending time working on my black high line b5.5 estate refitting the gtb2260vk turbo and 9.5mm Newmans camshaft. So not much has been done on my daily silver B5.5 but it now needs a bit of work as the alternator belt tensioner has started to chatter and there is a small leak at the bottom of the rad. So both parts are on order to sort these issues. When I'm sorting these issues I'll fit the hybrid cr1756 turbo.

Hope you can update us about the progress of your build. have you fixed the leak problem?

leon10tagg June 21st, 2016 21:48

Been a while but so far I've been able to source an allroad front strut brace, new drivers side door frame trims as the existing ones have spots of corrosion and 2 new wings are to be fitted. Also had to fit a new alternator clutch pulley.

Complete set of StrongFlex bushings ordered for my silver passat to rebush the front suspension before this years Mot. Also hopefully I'll be ordering an Eibach 32mm front anti-roll bar for the car this month and then the rear beam will be braced to reduce roll at the rear.


leon10tagg July 7th, 2016 13:24

Eibach anti-roll bar ordered so I've a bit of work now to do on the car for its annual mot test.
