Default Santa Cruz GTG (TB's, Nozzles,Chips...) May 3rd, 2008

Not to hijack the thread, but just wanted to help firm up plans for folks to come to sunny Santa Cruz for an awesome GTG.

When: Saturday May 3rd, 2008
Where: Pacific Biofuels (Corner of Ocean St. X Soquel Ave)


Sign up and state your wishes. Perhaps a group buy can ensue if there is enough interest in a particular area.

Kerma and BleachBora have both said this date works. Buckweat and OldPoopie have expressed interest. This is our opportunity to have a great GTG in a beautiful spot and get Timing Belts, Nozzles, Chip Tuning and maybe more done, just in time for summer. If you just want to come and wrench on your car, thats great and we always do a great potluck, but if you need the above items done by a guru, please step up and support this GTG.

1. Regina (regkat)- re-tune after turbo upgrade/Timing Belt
2. Turbo D - PP520 nozzle install and vagcom adjust.
3. Estresco -PP520 nozzle install & tune
4. Cruzntdi - R520 nozzle install & re tune
5. Flashmayo - TB, possible PP520 as well.
6.
7.

Glad I'll have Reg there to pack me up when we're done!

Lets get this going folks. I'd need 3 belts for saturday. Also, if we could do a location for sunday, even a garage, I'd be able to do 3 more. This will take real commitments to make happen. NO WISHYWASHYNESS

I'm in if I can get the following done on an 02 NB:

TB
skidplate install
intake cleaning
nozzles/tuning (possible)

I'm flexible and can do 5/3 or 5/4.

How could I NOT attend? This is as local as a GTG is likely to get for me! Don't need a TB change yet, nor nozzles or chip tune. But I'll think of something..........even if it's just to bring my VAG-COM and hang out.......... lift pump?.....boost valve?.......other BleachedBora goodies?

I would say that the intake cleaning may be a DIY job. It may also not be needed. Are you having power loss issues?

The skidplate would be nice to do if there were a lift in the bay, but Pac BioFuels doesn't. But then again, I haven't installed one. Anyone want to chime in on if this can be done on rhino ramps?

So, if you are good with the TB, nozzles & a tune are you still in?

I was wondering when you'd notice we were getting a "Surftown GTG" happening! It'll be good to see you there!

Ok, I'm making a list of those interested in timing belts. I can typically do 4 in a day. I reccomend bleachedbora's kits.
I'd like to limit work to timing belts only, since switching from one type of job to another is a time killer.

Here is a list of those who've commited to a spot on Saturday.

1. Regina (regkat) 03 jetta wagon
2. DrivingInMyCar 03 golf


Here is a list of those interested in a day on Saturday or Sunday. I still need a committed host for Sunday.

1. Flashmayo
2. Cruznwrx (possible host for Sunday)
3. Ben Truong
4. mtnwater
5. Frugal_Traveler

Please, since I'd be traveling from Portland Oregon, I need to know the level of interest or commitment of all those interested.

-Justin

Default lets get organized.

Folks, Old Poopie is really working to get us organized here. Now that we have a Guru this GTG is a Go provided we get 3 (max 4) names on the list for both Sat and Sun. To help us do that, please do the following if you want a Timing Belt done on either Sat, May 3 or Sun, May 4:

1) copy the Sat list and add your name to it in your post OR
2) start a new Sun list and add your name to it in your post.
3) view your name on this list as a COMMITTMENT so Justin can justify the trip.
4) order your complete timing belt kit (BB kits recommended)

Please do NOT just send a post with "I'm in". Too hard to keep track of.

It's great to see this shaping up!! Also I would like to recommend we have the belts done in the order they appear on the list. That means first to commit is first to repair. You can see this is slanted in my favor but then again, I'm local and apt to be on time. In fact I will come early (along with Matt??) and help get set up.

I don't need any work done, but wouldn't mind comming by and saying hello. I've got some injector tools and vag-com and can help out if needed. I enjoy meeting fellow TDI folk, shooting the breeze and what not.
