Default Kerma TDI

Has anyone used Kerma TDI products? I'm interested in the Q Loader on my 04 Pump Duse. The only mod I'm looking to do us remove the EGR because the cooler pipe broke. Any help/suggestions?

I'll vouch for them. When an issue came up the first time my car was flashed, no fault of Kerma, they went above and beyond to help me out for something out of their control.

I've had a few minor tweaks and some reflashes as well, turn around times have been pretty good.

My wife and I are happy with our flashes.

Same with me. Very happy with the tune and Charlie's customer service!

don't know a lot about the actual tunes, but that Q-Loader is sweet, allows you to port multiple tunes

Yah, they are good folks to do business with. Charlie has spent hours helping me with an issue that had nothing to do with a Kerma product. I try to buy as much from them as possible, b/c they earned it.
Panzer Plate, New South boost pressure and EGT gauge, Q-loader, Kerma 2.5 turbo down pipe with 2.5 SS exhaust w/ cat only, ebay fmic( ask me why!), and Kerma 1856, Kerma OMI modified to fit a BEW, R32 in-take, PD150 intake manifold, BFI stage 2 mounts, Peloquin limited slip, SBC Stage 3 End, O2M six speed... R783's, E-Codes, shine rear sway bar, Bilstein HD's and Shine springs. 2 liter long-block next!

I can't say enough good things about Kerma and Charlie's tunes. I've bought many things from them and never had any issues.

lawnboy, if you're in Red Lion Pa, have you considered Rocket? You might find it less expensive and better service.

Wow!! What amazing service I got from Jeff @ Rocketchip!!! He spent 3 hours with me(1st time TDI owner) goin over different things with my car! Checking various known problem spots and making sure my car was 100%!! I couldn't have ever imagined better service!! All the time he spent with me and no additional charges!! I have a MK4 PD and just got my first 50+ mpg tank thanks to his chip!!! I was never able to break 50, with 49.5 being my best! 51.5 achieved this tank in the winter coldness and winter blend fuel!! I couldn't be happier and would recommend Rocket Chip to anyone!!
