Tuner Special: B&B Reworks Volkswagen Passat

Date posted: 02-16-2006

SIEGEN-BIRLENBACH, Germany — B&B Automobiltechnik, which specializes in preparing go-fast goodies for the Audi, Seat, Skoda and Volkswagen brands in Europe, has released new performance enhancement kits for the recently redesigned Volkswagen Passat sedan and wagon.

In addition to its usual roster of custom wheels and aero kits, B&B is offering several stages of engine modifications for the Passat's 2.0-liter turbo engine, which can bump output from 240 horsepower to 250, 286 or 300 hp.

B&B replaces the stock turbocharger on the engine with a larger B&B unit and further modifies the cooling, injection, induction, and electronic control systems to boost power. A special exhaust system with larger pipes and high-performance racing catalysts is also fitted.

The performance boost is impressive. Acceleration from zero to 60 mph drops below 6 seconds, and top speed climbs to more than 160 mph.

B&B offers similar enhancements for the TDI engine. For more information, check the company's Web site at www.bb-automobiltechnik.de.

What this means to you: Because 240 horses aren't enough.
