    Hi all, new to the forums, I've just bought a New Beetle a week or so ago, it's the 2000 model and was modified somewhat by the previous owner It has an aftermarket exhaust system and a huge pipercross induction kit, I was told due to the intake the MAF had to be unplugged.

  2. WTB: Neuspeed P-Flo Intake

    Marketplace Archives
    My 2002 Turbo S is FAR too quiet :P Anyone looking to sell their Neuspeed P-Flo intake kit? I'd want the whole thing (intake, filter, heat shield, etc.) It'd be the one for the 1.8T. I really want the noise, but can't justify the money for a brand new kit. Let me know, thanks! :D -Evan

  6. Getting to spark plugs

    2.0 Liter Gas
    I should start out by saying I'm a novice. I've ingested the "Auto Repair for Dummies" book and looked over enough shoulders to have the confidence to check and gap spark plugs, though. So I expectantly took off the plastic shielding over the engine, was pleased to recognize most of what I saw...
  7. Air Filter Replacement

    2.0 Liter Gas
    Hey Guy, I have a 1999 beetle (2.0L) and the entire car is stock with the exception of the deck (I don't listen to cassettes). I want to throw in a cone style airfilter but I'm on a tight budget. I was wondering if you guys can suggest a way for me to fabricate my own by removing the connection...
