YupThe B5 is more aerodynamic then the similar golf / jetta, hence why that car was EPA rated at 50, while the 99.5 jetta was rated at "just" 48. It is heaver though so the city mpg suffers.
Even the C6 Corvette has a coefficient of 0.28 Makes me sorta proud...I'm just missing about 200-300hp.The smooth lines, heavily raked windscreens, and smooth underpinnings helped give the B5 Passat an low coefficient of drag, rated at 0.27 (saloon model).
X2 stock witheverything detailed out and clean with no leaks. that is what will impress people at VW/TDI gtgs & TDIFest next year when you bring it outJon, I think I'd stick with a stock tune to start with and get all the issues fixed. Then after the car is mechanically solid again then consider the tune. I think as your car is really unique, you need to tread more conservatively.
Yup, the door I got is off one with the same leather, except he sold it all already. I'm glad I didn't give him any more business, kind of burned me on the door and gave me the run around. At least the metal is in super nice condition. I'll see if the junk yard is open on monday that lists a number of B5 passats to see if they have anything for me.JFettig, yours is leather. If it were leatherette it would have perforation holes. I'd say start looking. There's gotta be a toeffed B5 or B5.5 with leather in your color SOMEWHERE.
Yes that's should work....do I pull the one off the block and one off the EGR and take the one from the EGR to the heater core and connect it to the block?
Thanks for clearing that up, that is what I assumed.Yes that's should work.
Or, remove both hoses at the EGR cooler connetors and install a palstic U-connector to connect the two hosses.
Thanks for clearing that up, that is what I assumed.
Does the vac line just get plugged on the EGR valve?(again, I'm assuming this too).
Not sure how soon I'll do it, I might try it and hope I don't go into limp mode and reverse it if I do.
