    2000 ALH rebuild: Cam

    Is this normal that my engine is using that much oil? 1 Piston was replaced by previous mechanic along with a complete new ring job and bottom end refresh. I was told that this engine should last me a long time and i am worried that it might not if it keeps drinking oil as it is now. With...

    New Shop Bourne

    I just spent a ton of money on my mk4 at Chris's shop too. Chris is good guy to deal with and he won't let you out of his shop knowing something is not right. I did complete suspension overhaul, new SBC endurance clutch, etc... He is growing in my list of 3 people, including Chris Hill and Mike...

    Turbo oil seals blown after intake cleaning - whose fault is it?

    Experience speaks volume when it comes time to properly diagnose and do repairs on any cars, especially TDI's. I agree with most of you but I like the idea of exercising caution even if it means being extra careful or overkill as it would highlight and sometimes eliminate this type of nightmare...

    Trusted TDI Mechanics - By State

    I want to share a good experience that i had with dealing with Chris aka GTI TDI. First off, this guy is definitely serious about his work and he would not have it any other way. That's a proven statement with his personal work on his mk2 TDI that won an award at last year's TDI Fest. I drove...

    1999 Jeep cherokee, ALH swap

    Yep that's him. It should be fun when it's all done and Mike will take care of you. I am following your progress though. My truck is an 89 toyota extracab pick up but it has been sitting for a while now. I got to check if it's not rotted to pieces before i can even think about my project.

    1999 Jeep cherokee, ALH swap

    Is 94x your mechanic? I can vouch for Mike's work and he is a very good guy to deal with. He stands behind his work and he is a very good communicator. BTW Nice project! I am glad that you are using Mike because i spoke to him before about a similar swap project into a toyota. I am pretty...
