Default HOW TO's

Sorry if this isn't the right spot to post this, I'm on my phone. I bought this auto light kit but it didn't come with instructions (well English ones...). Can anyone tell me where the plug from the car or from this box plugs in? (I know one of them goes into the new switch).

it appears I bought the wrong unit even though they had it listed for a Mk6 Golf. (Just in case anyone wondered)

Just got an 02 tdi golf with 128,000 mi. Its in great shape but has been sitting for about 5 yrs. The only problem so far is the lack of power. 1st and 2nd I can feel the turbo up to about 3000 rpm then drops off. The other gears i only have boost from 2200- 3000 rpm. I have checked air box and looked into the intake by removing the 90on intercoller and they r mostly clean. Also, I'm looking to get some parts to upgrade. Larger turbo, injectors, 2.5" exhaust, need timing belt kit, etc.... What's the best place to purchase these? I have done some research on pricing and name brands but would like to keep it all from on source if possible. Another thing, what seems to be the concensus on a CNG kit for additional mileage gains. I have read you can double it for arroud $2500. Thanks for the help.

Andrew---Is this where we can expect to find your videos from in the future? Is there any reason to not insert the pump so that the arrow is mis-aligned (counter-clockwise) by about 20* so that when you set the "cap" with the cold chisel it comes into position? Thanks again for the how-to videos.

Installing it misaligned so that aligns when you tighten it would probably work just fine, that's a nice alternative way of doing it.

You can always find ALL of our videos here

I heard that the TDIclub was going to put something new together for stuff like ShadeTree University, but that didnt' happen yet, and we're not making another one like that until a special place is made where I won't upset people with "marketing" or "stealth marketing", shrugs.
