Yeas, indeed...I guess...as here in the UK...there aint too many V6
VTECS

As for the great handling debate.....in theory, any AWD saloon will out handle a FWD varient or of similar size, however, the Passat is a fairly large car....

Only trouble with FWD is that if you make one with too much power, you get that good ol Torque Steer that I keep mentioning lol

The only Hoda on sale here with V6 Vtec is the Accord Coupe I think, and that has the 3.2litre engine

I guess thats a TL then. Because the TL here is the only Honda that gets the 3.2L varient of the J series motor. What's the output? Here it is 270hp (258hp on the new rating system).

Smaller passages creates a higher pressure, so maybee a higher pressure exhuast is better or quicker? Idk Im thinking in terms of nail guns... Higher Pressure = Better power, better efficientcy. Lowere pressure = The opp.

You dont need a new intake on a Passat. If you wanted something faster you should have gotten something smaller.
