Facebook: JaxDubs Save the Manuals! Scowered the world for a (at the time/2015) new Passat with a manual. Jetta just wouldn't cut it in size, needed a back seat and trunk to fit two young ones Have since "warmed over" the Passat to make it what it is today. End goal is a "Passat Sized GTI" Function>Form Waiting for the big power mods, want to wear this clutch out first.

Leak at crank sensor appears to have slowed/stopped. Suspecting I was asking for too much boost via the JB-1, and pressurizing the crank case.
I have cleaned the area and will check periodically.

Left boost setting lower, and am still running stock air box and filter.

Am also running 1/2 quart of Lucas Oil Stabilizer now.

Changed the oil tonight and found a small leak at the crank sensor. Long story short, I found out my intake developed a rather large hole in it.

So I have reinstalled the stock OE intake and turned the overboost down on the JB-1

Might leave the stock intake on, or look for another brand.
