While driving home for the vw dealer after getting all the electrial problems fixed i noticed a lack of power once on the highway i was redlining 1st gear at 15 mph and shifted to 2nd and lost all power and tons of white smoke comin from the exhaust...called roadside asst took an 1 hr as usual and had the car brough rite back to the dealer.any ideas of when it could be the dealer couldnt really look at it due to the work increase with all the recalls on the passat n jetta trunk

dealers usually can't tell when a vehicle has been chipped besides the fact it's obviously faster...

for what you're paying the dealer to install your turbo you could easily just upgrade to a k04 turbo and do the install yourself...
