  • Hey Frank I have a 2006 Brm with 130,000 miles. I put a colt cam in it and about 1,500 miles ago it lost some power. I popped open the valve cover to find premature wear. I had a stage two cam. I am looking for a cam kit with your improved bearings. I would also like to get new valve lifters and cam bearings studs. I live in long beach Ms
    Hey Frank, I hear you are the Head Expert.
    I have a Head Crack question,.. 2002 ALH TDI. I am doing a new head gasket, sent the head out to get surfaced and found one chamber had a hairline crack from the injector, to the intake valve. Is this a 'replace the head' or 'run it' scenario? Been searching and a few have said that it's not a prob and run it. I would appreciate your input.
    Thanks!

    I discovered the same crack in my 2006 BEW head yesterday, but I have not had the head resurfaced. I have the crack in the head on all 4 cylinders. While looking at the crack with a magnifying glass, I realized there's only about 1mm of aluminum between the injector hole to the valve seat. I thought, what were they thinking when they designed this head? I also am wondering how to proceed.
    Hello, have to replace the dreaded egg cooler...2006 MkV BRM, shaft leaking. I am VERY interested in the welded butterfly option. I am not sure how this messaging "system" works. I am located in Atlanta GA. tel 770-316-2047 call or text.

    Hello, I have a 2002 vw jetta alh. I was wondering what the cost for a full head rebuild is and what is involved?
    Good Evening sir,

    I have a 2002 1.9 TDI Jetta and had an engine runaway and locked it up. Just pulled the motor and dissembled. Result 3 of connecting rods bent and 2 damaged pistons. Somehow the block survived. My question after removing all the pistons and rods the crank turns very free no tight spots.
    I have more questions but limited on here

    My question after removing all the pistons and rods the crank turns very free, no tight spots. No visible damage to the crank (I didn't remove it) and would rather not if possible. With all the force it took bending the connecting rods what would you suggest on the crank? Should I pull it and dye check? I don't want to spend a ton of money on an engine.

    Do you have a suggested place for parts. And.....I'm not a typing kind of guy if you had some time could we speak on a phone call. If not any help would be greatly appreciated.
