  2. Turbo Vacum Leak??

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    My turbo recently failed and my mechanic installed a new turbo. Turbo power has returned.. Car is running great, but when I accelerate and get up to about 2800-3000 rpm, I can hear some sort of air intake noise and the turbo seems to cut out somewhat losing power. When I let off the throttle...
  3. foot-well air-vent blow pressure?

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I might not actually have anything wrong here, but i wanted to be sure: On my 2003 2.0 hatch-back, when i have the air dialled to the dash vents only, the pressure/flow is fine. However, when i dial it to top+bottom or bottom-only, the flow is very poor. It definitely still comes out, and it...

  7. Deleting Secondary Air Injection System

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    I was looking to delete the secondary air injection system on my 2000 1.8T beetle and was looking to see if anyone else has done this. If so then I am interested in understanding if there are any issues I should be concerned with. I live in a town that doesn't do smog checks so no worries, parts...
