Thank you uberdiesel. Obviously, my bone-stock 2000 jetta is running fine and getting 46-47 mpg with my lead foot in it...heh heh heh.

Any news in a local informal gtg??? ...before I need my fuel filter changed out?? I have a spare, but that particular video will not play for me, aargh. Houston and the surrounding metroplex is a large area, therefore nowhere will be convenient to anybody. Sequin is much closer than montreal, but still not local enough for me...

It would have been nice, but my VNT20 failed after 10 minutes of run time.

Hi Texans,
I finally made it home, the drive was great, no problems except some hood scratches from a lawn crew mowing grass in the median and shooting crap into moving traffic :-( I saw traffic swerving and junk bouncing all over the road and slammed on the brakes and got over to the curb lane but stuff was in motion and bang. I also got cut off by a 50' rv towing a car, He got over and must of forgot he was towing a car. Funny thing he was going 80 and didn't need to pass anyone, probably falling asleep cuz no blinker. Americans don't know how to drive safe anyway, go to europe and drive the autobahn and learn the proper way to give signals and right of way. Mooove over when beamer is flashing lights and coming up on you at 160mph or you die.

BARtuning is awesome and Mike is very passionate about VW's and a very good wrench (mechanic). Nathans car was very fast and ran great after we rebuilt the turbo that only lasted 2 minutes (not RC tuned on his 1st test drive of new/reman turbo).

I'll be back Nov 17 at seguin gtg and hope to see you all there again.

Jeff

Just thought I'd pop in and say hello.
I'm new to the TDI world. I have an '06 Jetta I just purchased a couple months ago and love it. Beats the heck out of the 17 mpg I was getting with my '01 3/4T Ford superduty 4X4. Especially when I was driving 65 miles each way to work.
Yes, I know where West Columbia is since I drive thru it everyday on my commute. Hwy 35, Bay City to Alvin (FM2917). Anyone know where I can get my jetta serviced in or around Matagorda County? I bought it from a guy on ebay in the Hou area and mistakenly assumed there was a dealership closer than 100 miles from home. It's only got 38k miles on it but it started stammering and hesitating on acceleration a few weeks ago and I was recommended to check to see if the EGR vlv is stuck. All I got to do now if figure out how to do that. Which reminds me, anyone know where I can find a maintenance manual for it?
I'll keep checkin the board to see when there might be a GTG in our area.
Good to meet ya'll.
Regards,
Bluenorther
