If you tire of the couch that can suck days out of your life in Springfield, the offer for the spare room at my house is still open. The guys know how to get in touch with me.

Just wanted to chime in for the intake/egr cleaning Matt did on my 217k mile MK4 Golf TDI. Matt is a great guy, very knowledgeable and did a pristine job in doing the work as promised and was able to hook me up with coding to allow my key fob to turn down/up all windows free of charge! My intake manifold/egr was crudded beyond belief (was never cleaned and only had approximately 1cm diameter opening for my car to breathe!!) Now my car runs 100% better! Thanks bud for your efforts!

Nothing that a propane torch and some compressed air can't solve.

He's doing my brother's turbo. Poor kid...Matt did his suspension a week ago and on the test drive, realized his turbo was shot.

New VNT-17 waiting in the garage.

Then it's GO time...new Koni's + RC2 @ fest + new bigger turbo = weeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

It's not even my car and I'm excited!
