    At risk of getting pooped ... I'd find a good offline mechanic who is familiar with the TDI ... and loose the DPF if you're not in an emission's county. There is NOTHING wrong with these cars, just that some entity didn't want little diesels in the US market and bought the EPA. checkout the...

    No boost till 2000rpm! Please help

    My Kerma Tune does that a little bit. Needs 2K to start performing. I avoid "cruising" <1800 RPM. I'm unfamiliar with a p130 or n75. Sorry. Good luck.

    2006 Headliner Replacement?

    I had a local shop replace mine. $200. Looks better than the factory. He also tinted my windows. Also GREAT JOB. "Mr Tint" in Stephenville Texas with all the air bags everywhere, I wasn't even going to consider attempting it ... especially not for $200. I'll snag a photo and add to my...

    EGR Delete

    I have an '06 per my sig ... I had Steve Glover install a delete on my EGR with the cam replace, et al ... and Kerma tune. that was at 158K miles. Now has just over 206K. Couldn't be happier. I suppose the mileage deal might be a factor if your typical operation is crank, run 5 minutes...

    Best Oil Yet? Renewable Lubricants: BioSyn 5w-40

    James ... Terry Dyson recommended this brand for my 6.7 F350. I've considered switching to it for my TDI from the Amsoil. I'll be taking a sample and sending to Dyson Analysis in the next month/so. The Ford 6.7 is susceptible to fuel dilution, so I'll be interested to see how that goes in...

    Made my turn in appointment today

    Thanks Dan. I know ... spit in one and wish in the other ... but I wish Trump would put the EPA back in its place. This was an absurd deal. Gonna miss that little car ... and blast 'em for devaluing my 06!

    Worth reading

    Hmm ... on a <$4000 blue book value car? That's what chaps me about this diesel gate nonsense ... the "non affected" cars ... affected. Don't his a possum! Been there, done that. $3800 repair. Insurance covered it, minus deductible, of course ... but that's when it was valued at >$20K. This...

    Made my turn in appointment today

    Still waiting for our authorization to make the drop off appointment. Gotta see the number, too. It's all theory right now. 2012 DSG with 80K now ... It's been sitting for 2 months. Didn't want to lose as much as 8500 on a total ... or worse, have to repair it for $3500. Still love the car...
