Hella good news! Congrats to you two. Sounds like business will be good. I know I'll be sending more folks your way.

And a hella unrelated question. In Seattle, who can run a voltage output test for me on the camshaft adjuster solenoid valves on a W8 Passat?

Thank you, Ronnie! Come down and visit once you can get off the mountain, yeah? It has been a process, but now it's real..and we're PSYCHED.

You all are too much. Thank you for the continued love.

I was good to see Matt in his new shop today, looking very content... not having to schlep 400 pounds of tools around in the back of the car everyday makes a man smile!

We went over my car, and determined that I'm going to get a new Borg-Warner turbo real soon now.

I still need to make it over to put in my clutch. Been driving around it in my trunk for 3-weeks.
Too busy with work

I highly recommend the BW replacement turbo on the Mk4 ALH. We have one and it's been great! I think Matt installed it, too.

So, allow me to be the first to say that we've been humbled by the number of NEW customers that have come by. Business is finally starting to pick up in earnest, not just in fits and starts. Matt is more or less BOOKED for the next 2 weeks, but if your hours are flexible, we may be able to fit you in somewheres.

Thanks again for all your support TDIclub...and keep spreading the word about where we are! <3

Matt just slipped in a BV39 Turbo for my Golf, it was a pleasure watching him work - nothing like having a proper lift to spare arms and neck muscles from strange contortions. We did a new 3.0 MAP and Malone tune, too. I logged block 011 today, and all looks good. Though it turns out my Bosch 0.205 injectors are now a tad anemic, so there's one more mod left to do... DLC1019's from DBW LLC!

Bottom line, glad Matt is working locally in his own shop, and keeping busy. This is good for all of us.

Oh, and I spied an old stranger at the end of the day...
