Hello, JasonTDI also informed me about this upcoming event. We have a 2011 JettaTDI wagon we'd like to get tuned. The information contained in here, is very powerful.I struggle to find most information on this forum, and I'm sure it's just the lack of familiarity with it. If possible, I would greatly appreciate anyone willing to give me a tutorial on how to navigate. In regards to the tuning; I would like to put my name in, to get ours tuned. Wherever that link is, I would like to 'sign up' for it.......

No link to 'sign up', but I edited the tune list in the first post of this thread to add your name to the list.


We have WiFi at the club so I'm sure someone can help show you around the forum.

I'll add this. Custom tunes, complicated ones that take HOURS sometimes, you guys should wait to the end and let everyone with a simple flash get on with their day. Happens every time.....it's a total PITA for everyone else stuck waiting for "changes" to your set up. Just sayin'....

Jason - I assume you're directing this comment at scurvy and myself? This is why there's a separate list for re-tunes/updates and why Jeff decides the order of the tuning activities.

I agree with your comment, though it seems a bit unsolicited. I'm assuming you've had issues with this in the past? Hope it hasn't been me - if so my apologies. I've always understood that re-tunes/updates are 2nd priority, but ultimately decided by the tuner.

The tunes list always seems to be a bit of a pain, and I do appreciate Jason's comment to help manage expectations - especially with new folks at GTGs.


All I'm looking for is immobilizer delete and going back to the 7v glow plug programming as the "improved" 5v plugs suck compared to the originals. Possibly upgrading to RC1+ or 2? Would have to talk with Jeff about that, and would do so directly. And yes, this is on my 2006 BEW Golf, 6x6man.


Also, anybody got some Golf fenders that are rust-free? Mine aren't and before I start hitting the pick & pulls wanted to see if anybody has some up for trade.

I thought Jeff (Rocketchip) tuned cars in the order they appear on the actual paper hard copy "tune list" he puts out on the day of the GTG where owners sign up in person? In other words, first come - first served excepting the rare cases of an under-maintained TDI he refuses to tune and/or a custom complicated tune where he may shuffle the order of tunes around a bit.

At least that's how he's always done it at Michigan GTG's for many, many years. Perhaps you Wisconsiners do it differently from what is being said here...

It is up to Jeff to decide the order he performs tunes, so I assume that he will do it the same way he has in the past.


The list in the first post of this thread is simply to give people an idea of how many people are looking for Jeff's services.

Default Tune appointment for GTG

Jason, and all in the forum; Thank You for the info, and help within. I can't find the first post of this thread; "No link to 'sign up', but I edited the tune list in the first post of this thread to add your name to the list." My apologies but I just don't know how to find the info in this forum. If I can find it, I'll put my name on it. I've looked on Jeffs website. The GTG is not there. I believe I'll just call him and see what he suggests. His Facebook doesn't look really active. I was unable to find the West Allis Auto Club event within it. I'll reach out to him via phone. I'm eager to get our 2011 Wagon tuned for Max mileage/efficiency, which Jason suggested will also improve our performance. Everybody's always very busy. I'm eager for anyone's suggestions, and Jason, Yes, that will be awesome to have a tutorial from someone at the event. Thank You, Brent

Try this link, it should take you to the first page of this thread:

http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=490794


Your name is already on the list for a new tune so you have no worries there. I don't believe Jeff lists/promotes what GTG events he will be at. The quickest way to reach Jeff is by calling him at (717) 676-8755 if you need to discuss what you are looking for in your tune.


Hope this helps.
