    GSP axles.

    What about the GRC axles made in France? Sold as OEM but I have never heard of them before.

    rear LED bulbs

    Also running the same deAuto LED bulbs. No problems now for the last eight years. Just use the OEM bulbs for turn signals and the Phillips long life bulb does the trick.

    Fluidampr for TDI

    They have marketed the Fluidampr crank pulley for the MkIV TDI engines. If the pulley is the same on your 2006 (I have no idea if they are) it should work. I have one on our 2000 Golf TDI and another was installed on the 2003 Golf R-TDI that was later sold but is still on the road. Both...

    Trusted Mechanic in Burlington WA area

    There is a small shop north in Bellingham but I have forgotten the name! Or, you can go south and try Matthew at Zahntech in Redmond, they are super and knowledgeable.

    GotTuned turbo and injector review?

    GTD1756VRK purchased from Gottuned over two years ago. Great turbo, runs circles around the 1722 I had previously. Kept the Bosio 502s' but had them cleaned up and tested just for sure. Run RC4 which is conservative for this setup but I know the boost point, the wife drives the lower end so...

    Stop fueling with Propel HPR Diesel

    You guys are lucky. Go even further north and it gets even harder to find. Washington state in particular is slowly loosing touch with sources.

    Old diesel fuel shelf life?

    And was there any fuel stabilizer added to it before storage?

    What turbo to buy?

    Totally agree with Max on this. The newer turbos from these guys in Poland are sweet units and wow do they spin! You can't go wrong and an easy upgrade...but you might run it a bit before deciding if you need tune updating...

    glow plug light only stays on for 2 seconds

    You can go in with VCDS software and reset the glow period to a longer sequence. You might also want to check the harness and the glow plugs to make sure you are getting the proper glow, no buggered plug or loss of voltage.

    That is for sure. Sometimes you think you have beat it, then it rises up to clobber you on the head...whispers in the back of the brain...upgrade, upgrade, renew, renew...I sometimes think the car will out live me! Oh, and you are most welcome! Enjoy the process!

    If you get Frank to do a head for you I recommend the porting along with the rebuild. It really helps with breathing / exhaust. Dual springs worth it too.

    Yup. Got $500 for my 17/22. It only had about 57K miles on it so lots of life left but doggedly slow to spool compared to the new 1756.

    Went with 1756 from these guys. Nice set up that replaced an older 17/22. Newer tech, newer turbine bearings, what is not to like! Spools so quickly...wonderful shut down whine. The only thing I did not like was the use of silicone hose for oil feed line. Stock OEM will work fine on ALH.

    1.9 TDI ALH short block *needed* asap

    If this doesn't work out, Aaron may have some factory units still in the crate at his warehouse at Cascade German Parts, near Portland. A plain IDI block is the same thing as the ALH you just pull the rods and pistons and swap out them out for ALH. Did that and it worked out just fine...

    ALH lift pump install how to?

    I have always thought of this as a push / pull relationship in the ALH. Nothing like making the movement of fuel an easy bit of work with the in tank pump pushing and the lift in the IP pulling at the same time. Can't believe they did not implement this earlier as an OEM setup in the ALH.
