Asked by Jul 28, 2010 at 08:29 AM about the 1998 Volkswagen Passat

Question type: Car Customization

I want to make my 1998 1.8T Passat faster. In particular, it's acceleration to 120km/h rather then top speed.

Should I install a new ECU, or pump the turbo up or what?

I live in Australia if that changes anything.
