    Brakes 102 - Or, Why Do My Brakes Keep Pulsating / Warping?

    Just had a second car in the shop in only a few weeks with the same issue - brake pulsation. Both cars had front brake jobs done by mechanics not unknown to this forum using quality parts from trusted vendors within less than 20K miles and were pulsating badly again already. For one of those...

    A huge THANK YOU! to Fred's TDI Club and its members for all the support these past few years in making Skunkwerx a success. Quitting my day job to work on TDIs full time last fall was one of scariest things I've done. I am so happy I did though. In fact, business is so good that my...

    *** SOLD *** I purchased this programmer and pre-paid for a stage 3 tune during the group buy a few months ago for my girlfriend's '03 Jetta. She ended up going a different direction and buying Paramedick's '04 wagon that was already nicely tuned. Got a great deal on the tune and programmer...

    ***SOLD!*** My girlfriend's car is now for sale. She bought this TDI last spring via eBay (more or less sight unseen) with the intent of modding it for autocross. It was not quite as pristine as she is accustomed to having driven mostly newer cars. Since then the desire to race has subsided...

    WTB: 108mm 02J Axle Flanges

    Considering having some custom Raxles made for the beast and was informed I would need 108mm axle flanges for my OA4 to do so. 02J flanges from a VR6 or 1.8T should do the trick. Any out there to be had?

    Vendor "Links" Idea

    Based on this thread, and hundreds just like it that clog the forums, I wish to offer a suggestion: This compendium of vendors could live in the "Links" tab as I mentioned, or could simply be a stickied thread in the classified section. I see this as having three benefits to the club. First...

    Waited Too Long For Timing Belt in Modded Engine (95K miles)...

    I replaced the TB at 155K miles prior to major mods (see sig for the basics) that came a bit after 190K miles. Even though the head got a full rebuild I reused the 35K mile TB, figured I would let it live it's life. Fast forward about a year and I found myself in a very messy divorce from my...

    Adding EMP Gauge, Any Reason For EGT Anymore?

    So my McNalley boost/EGT gauge dropped and LED segment again. It is too small of boost range anyway at 0-30 PSI, initial spike is pegging it every time. I am thinking of new gauges and am leaning heavily toward ISSPRO. Going to add a EMP gauge while I am at it. First question is if an EGT...
