The story goes that they were going to bring in this model for NAmerican consumption as a logical follow up to the B4 diesels. Rumor has it that they pulled the plug at the last minute due to "managements'" concern about unfavorable NVH and lack of power in this heavier next gen Passat.

Jon, when you're motoring about in this semi-unique car, does the power seem adeqauate?

I rode in a B5.5 TDI and its less power than that. I also drove a Jetta TDI with a 1.9 and that was completely gutless, I have a feeling that the turbo was shot or something.
Mine definitely has adequate power. I suppose I could plug in my obd2 computer connector and run the "dyno" program on it and see what it spits out. It tells me that my 2.8 runs about 112hp(calculated based off of acceleration, weight and drag coefficient). It definitely makes my 2.8 seem like a powerful engine

Its not bad, especially after I vacuumed a pound of sand out of the snow screen area and changed the air filter which was nasty!

So its got 140300 miles on it and the t-belt was changed at 82,800 miles I believe. I'll get one on order shortly.

The TB job on this car looks like a pleasure compared to the others!

It almost looks like it could be done without even putting it into service position but I probably will.

Does anyone know what size threaded rod is required for service position? Is it M8? Whats the standard length people usually make them? I might just turn some up on the lathe.

Yes, as Lug Nut said look in the trunk under carpeting or under spare wheel or spare wheel well (somewhere where), there must be white color paper sticker and on the sticker usually all car info: Engine/tranny codes, exterior/interior paint codes, VIN and some other great stuff...

Everything I can find on it points to a 90hp engine, Its a 5 speed manual and 140,300 miles. I'll check in the trunk when I get a chance.

We got a winner!

I looked in the trunk, saw nothing with any information. I went to Schmells on 36 and they tried to look it up.. no 1.9 TDI, so I give them the VIN number and I got all kinds of info, its tucked away in the car and I'll scan it next week.

The engine is an AHH, Tranny is a DHL, Finaldrive Ident 5S, Interior trim code: YZ, roof color N4.
According to the printout, its a GLS Saloon.
Its got a whole list of "PR Numbers" which I assume are the options/features. Thats what I'll scan at work next week.

Cool! compu_85 is telling me that the AHH is basically a 90 hp AFN, or another way to look at it is it's an AHU with a VNT turbo. (At least he thinks so ).

Well, Greengeeker looked at it today, we're going to have to figure out which parts I need, I have part numbers for a few items but not all of them. Any idea what motor mounts I'd need? I'm going to likely have to get really dirty and pull them out or something just to hope to read part numbers, I really hope they're not going to have to be imported.

I got my engine bay steam washed, its looking better!

Spot on. It also appears to have an ALH-style pump with separate pump sprocket.

A nice touch added by Burnsville Volkswagen is a backwards-tensioned TB tensioner .

Nick,

Do I need to fab up any custom tools for the job? You mentioned that the lock pin for the pump is about 5/8"? I can stick a caliper in there and measure the hole and whip something up, how tight does it need to be?

Here are a couple things I found:
