Hey Astonish. Not sure yet if I'm going or not. I also have vag-com (USB version). Do you know how to get ahold of Jeff (website, etc.)?

Hey Dave,

If the timing was right, I'd make the short trip (3hrs) and come over for a GTG, weekend event, or even a Guinness or two. Besides, I make a few trips to Brookline and the South Park areas each year anyway.

BTW, we missed you at this year's Spring GTG.

Mark

Stirer - email him at info@rocketchip.com

The trick is to be very descriptive in subject.
In the body of the email give details of your car what you are looking for, etc.

Well you guys all seem very much in the chip "know". I want to keep my stock clutch, for now, and don't have upgraded injectors, yet. What do you think is a good starting point with my plan to upgrade injections shortly thereafter? What is a good chip/injector set for some more power but not a smoking mess?

Rocketchip will give you no or minimal smoke. I don't have any smoke- RC2+, sprint 520's. I think you might want to get injectors first. Just email Jeff, he knows his stuff...

Default Great idea - a Pittsburgh area thread

I've met a few of you. Mentioned TDI club to atleast a dozen folks who had never heard of it - one at the local VW dealer last week. I do occasionaly run into metalnerd - about one time a year in the Greensburg area.

I'm at 13?k and will probably plan on an intake cleaning sometime soon. Thinking about the nozzles - still debating on if they are a wear item. I always run PS white in winter, Lucas injector cleaner in the summer. I need to replace the bearings on drivers strut again - anyone know of a better quality stock style replacement? This will be the second replacement but I really think it's them again. Swaybar bushings (replaced 40k ago) seem fine. Struts themselves(replaced one time) seem fine.

Don't know if I'd ever be able to do a GTG but I do have a 4 post lift here at home that is free from time to time. If someone wanted to do something like a skidplate install we could probably work something out. Evenings are typically better than weekends for me.

Someday I may even chase the frequent front brake squeak under light breaking - I think pghTDI is trying to acquire expertise in this area.

Anyway I'm north of Greensburg up near Apollo right off route 66. I try to check in here atleast weekly.

Looking forward to meeting more of you. I have a vag-com as well but use it for reading and clearing codes - nothing exotic - atleast not yet.

Dave

Guys - Excellent idea on starting this thread. A GTG would be great.

I drive an 04 wheat beige Jetta with a european "Jetta TDI" front license plate on my way from Delmont to Harmar everyday.
