If I was a shill I would have been defending him years ago.

I only bought the head and turbo from him. I bought a timing belt kit from someone else that had a Conti belt. I've had good luck with those belts.

Can anyone say if they had a problem specifically with a head from this guy?

I seriously want to know because I need a head for an ALH
Just buy what you need from IDparts and you will be good.

Removed three of them over the last 7-8 years. One was so warped it puked the head gasket after 5k. Good thing as his "timing belt" was half its original width and would have caused far greater damage. The secong just ran very poorly after 20K. Lots of unburnt fuel smoke and very hard to start. The valve seats were so soft they pretty much either eroded down or the base metal was so soft it hammered them in. The third was a SMOKER. oil smoke, bad. There was about .5mm of play in EVERY guide. That head had 3K on it.

Junk....

Default Hans auto got me

To be clear, for anything engine related or mechanical/critical I always buy from the tdiclub vendors.

As per usual, should have checked here first. Got fooled by the "Hans auto" store front when quickly searching for a less critical part (door latch).

Live and learn.

Luckily it's "just" a door latch and is easy to change on the mkv but still hate to be sending any money his way. Will be more careful going forward.

BLAAST has ignored my e mails for warranty coverage.
I replaced it with a VNT-17, and have had no problems.
If you buy a BLAAST turbo, you are throwing away good money.

A sad bump for this crook......

I have one of these installed that I need to change out. It's an OEM pump that clearly has issues since it wanders all over the voltage map and throws codes. It is still working but isn't right. I have an old pump on the shelf that worked fine so I'll toss it on.

Was laying in bed thinking about this dude. Since he is very good at finding cheap stuff in China for our cars. Why the hell doesnít he get us some beetle door panels made? Cheap Chinese plastics canít be any worse than what vw makes them out of. And Iíd be fine paying him $150. Iím sure many others would since vw wants so much for them. Every time Iím looking for something non mechanical google links to him but he no longer sells it. Iíll take chinese cosmetic parts for 1/4th the price. Canít be any worse than cardone and dorman crap everybody here sells.

He kinda has a point though... A lot of his non critical products are no worse than what you get from most parts stores

^ which supports his business and the likelihood that he will trash yet another innocent TDI'ers cylinder head with a timing belt he won't guarantee other than to replace it with another CRAP belt

Sure Jason, but the point of the thread is who's considered a "bad" vendor. We confirm that he is one and then to say, he can get an item cheap for us, let's contact him about that. The thread was based on treatment of customers, and I'd say supporting him on non critical items so he can keep supporting his critical item failures is a loss.

Screw you Windex, too fast
