  1. VW Jetta / Bora MKIV 1998 Euro,1999.5 US -2005
    Ok so my dad and I pulled my 1.8 out and put a rebuild kit in it and we realized my turbo was cracked and I had another one from a junk yard that seemed to be in good health. Well we put it all together, put it back in the car and fired it up and it was running sort choppy but we didn't have...

    I've had my MKIV for almost 10 years now, and as of last year she started showing transmission problems - mostly rough shifts. Took it to the dealer, but ultimately a transmission shop and got her back in working order. Just recently started having problems again. Before I go back in to have her...

    I'm looking into getting LED headlights, since not having to replace them as often has a lot of appeal to me. Plus I put on like-new headlight assemblies a few months back after my front end got banged up, so I want a brighter bulb that isn't super hot. Big question for me is if I'm going to...

    Hello! I plan to do a bit of work on my Jetta come this Summer. I planned on snagging the Stage 1 APR Tune, a TBE, TIP, and DV. The biggest question I have is, will the car heat soak a lot if I stick with stock intercooler? If it would heat soak a bit, the next question is, would I need a FMIC...

    I've searched everywhere from forums to forums to google... When I got my Jetta, the radiator fan seemed to not work properly. It only seemed to come on at full blast, and only the larger fan. The smaller fan didn't work at all. What I noticed was that in the morning time or nighttime or when...

    Hi, I just recently purchased a 2015 MKVI Jetta S, I'm not looking to do many (if any) performance mods on it, seeing as its just the base model. But I am trying to change out the stock rims on it, but I'm not sure if the tire/wheel combo I want will fit. I currently have 6Jx15 wheels on it...

    I had a minor mishap with my MKIV last week and unfortunately it will not recover (damn icy roads)… Insurance decided to total it due to the fact that MKIV's have some age on them now and cost too much to fix anymore to them. To top it off, I had just had my brand new 3" 42DD exhaust put on…:'(...

    Actually, it's my second car. I'll start with a short story. I got my license about 5 months ago, and my grandfather got me a 2003 toyota corolla (quite the beast... not really). The guy he got it from was basically the shittiest dealer ever (one of the reasons I hate dealers), and the car hit...
