    05 Passat sedan manual transmission project

    Located in Central VA 23960 $2000 I bought this car last year with FHN trans, needing a clutch and due for a timing belt service. I did the belt service 30k ago along with a Colt Stage 3 cam and new followers, and a southbend clutch with their 17lb SMF. Turns out the magic number is apparently...

    Is my SMF eating transmissions?

    Pretty much just that. I'm running a complete Southbend setup with their SMF. Last summer, on the front end of a long trip, third gear syncro gave up the ghost. I drove gingerly for the whole trip (5k-ish miles) and by the end of that trip, the trans was a complete disaster. At times, it...

    B5.5 headlights

    The previous owner of my car installed some crappy headlight housings. Are there any aftermarket housings that you guys like? Or is my best bet to find some OEM lights and clean them up? I'm getting ready for a 5k mile road trip, which will include lots of night driving, and bad headlights...

    Quickest way to get a replacement clutch?!

    My car is 5 speed swapped. The clutch that's in it now was supplied by Frans, according to the previous owner. I knew it would need a clutch in the not-too-distant future, but today something went way wrong. Maybe broken spring on the pressure plate?? Pedal all the way down, it won't completely...

    B5 ALH? Anyone?

    Seems like a reasonable swap, although I'm sure there are problems I'm not thinking about... I'm surprised a Google search didn't turn up many/any completed conversions with actual information. Has anyone here done it? And I do mean B5, not 5.5... I picked this thing up yesterday for a song...

    Sometimes you win one.

    I've always wanted a white, 5 speed, 4 door, non-sunroof golf. One popped up on craigslist a month or so back "needing a motor" for less than I've sold a manual trans swap for, so I scooped it up. The PO said he hit a rock while turning around in his yard, put a hole in the pan, and ran it...
