Take it off, and see if it stops.^^^ I recently had a great experience with autoanything.com Even though they're not a VW specialist, They carry many parts. I bought my Power Stop brake kit from them for $161 w/ free shipping. They're sale price was $172.95 but I found it else where for $162 and they beat the price by a buck :K: Not only was it a super sexy brake kit but it came with a 3 year warranty. :K:

i have a 2004 1.8t the brake hp is about 155 and 180 to the crank. FMIC is front mounted intercooler and turbo back exhaust is a 3" exhuast pipe from the turbo and back to the tail pipe. I just want to get my jetta as powerful as i can get it without changing out the internals?
I have a stock AEB 1.8T that can handle 360Hp on the stock bottom end but my AEB is the only U.s. spec head that has big ports on the head. It also has forged rods stick if your going with a 1.8t build AEB is a great platform for a build. It's a 058 style block with the external water pump driven by an aux belt. The oil pump is driven by an intermediate shaft as well. It's cast iron and doesnt need sleeved to make decent power. Is your jetta an 8v 1.8 engine or is it a 2.slow??

No. Brake hp is defined as hp at the drive wheels.

I feel fairly certain that all will agree that hp and more importantly torque is always measured at the drive wheels on a dyno.

I do not know what you mean by "getting a turbo back fmic" and don't understand what you mean by "tning" [trying] it on a dyno.

You will not know for sure how any modification to your 1.8T under consideration affects the hp and torque range until you actually install the modification on your vehicle and have the vehicle tested on a dyno.

I have to ask this question:

Why do you want to increase your Jetta's hp / torque? Are you planning to race it? At even highway speeds your stock Jetta should have more than sufficient hp / torque to just about go faster than anybody else and certainly faster than is safe for you and others.
Hi I’ve got a kinda dumb question to ask you I have a 03 Jetta 1.8t and It shocked me on how slow this car was just because of everyone’s good reports about them is there anything I should check that might be causing it to loose power and another thing do they have a governor. Thanks in advanced
