We do have a big back yard and can park maybe 5 cars in the driveway.

You're going to need that furnace, soon.

Welcome back to the TC, Chris! Camden is IMHO an underrated neighborhood. Enjoy.

Can someone please tell me where I can find an EGR delete kit for my 2012 Jetta TDI sedan. I have the CJAA motor with the EGR right out front. It's throwing codes and I'm wanting to get rid of it.

Please don't buy that darkside racepipe, despite my input to him designing the o-ring steal properly, it still does not seal up, nor does it even contact the intake after torquing it down.

fixmyvw.com also sells the same racepipe that Buzzken has listed, this one is well made and designed correctly.

On common rail engines, you can't just delete the EGR and get away with it, the EGR systems are tied into the rest of the emissions too much you'll need to do a full delete and get a tune.

Thank you very much. I've been looking all over the place trying to find parts for this darn thing and the only results i get is for the AHL 1.9 motor. I have the CJAA 2.0 motor, which I haven't seen very many aftermarket options for. Am I able to do a tune with VCDS? And I don't have VCDS, where in MN can I get a tune done? I live in Maplewood.

Also, what would happen if I drove without the tune?

I think Jon Fettig can give you a tune as he is a Malone Dealer and he has been at it for a while. . I own VCDS Hex-Can that should work on your car.

Thanks. I'll talk to him. I really, really do appreciate the quick responses on here that I've gotten. I've joined other enthusiast forums for other cars and trucks that I've owned and haven't seen as quick of a response as here, especially from people that live so close to me.

In case anyone is interested, I came across a 92 Tacoma with a diesel swap (not TDI)
http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hn...414781553.html

It's a Mercedes straight 5 cylinder with a 5spd 4x4 for 7k. I miss my Liberty and would love a smaller 4x4 with a diesel, mostly been keeping my eye out for a TDI in a Wrangler. Since I am not as talented by greengeeker, I don't plan on doing it myself. I don't know the guy but don't see these around much just throwing it out there.

Been awhile since I've been active here, good to see some familiar usernames still active. My car is still going strong as my daily, thanks to Nick helping me out on several occasions.

I got married (for the 2nd and last time) in September. My wife and I started house shopping in December, and we will officially be moving to Blaine in March (closing Feb 26th). New place has a shallow 3 car garage, insulated but no heat (yet). Can't wait to get it setup and do a lot of deferred maintenance on my car...need to keep the old gal running for as long as I can.

I see your car from time to time in the mornings as I travel south through Chaska to Hwy 169 towards the Burnsville area. Congrats on the new house and garage!

Thanks! We can't wait to get moved in. My commute is going to roughly double, but 40 minutes (excluding accidents/weather/construction) isn't bad at all. And the wife is going to have a nice short commute when her job moves to the Target Campus in Brooklyn Park (currently near West End).
I think I've seen a silver Golf like yours, but they are a little more ubiquitous than my car is. Hopefully I wasn't driving like a jerk. If you see me again before March, give me a wave because I will be on the 610/252/100 route after that.
