    Colt Stage 2 ALH Camshaft - NEW

    I am selling a new Colt Stage 2 cam for the ALH. Bought it April of 2014 from TDI Racing (Oliver) with plans of putting it in my Jetta to compare with the Franko6 stage 2 cam that's in there. I never did. And now with the GTI I don't drive the Jetta much anymore. Asking what I paid for it, $350...

    Redline 5w40 new formulation

    I posted this in my CJ-4 thread, but it'll probably do more good in its own thread. The latest formulation of Redline 5w40 no longer satisfies CJ-4 requirements [per the spec list and Dave at Redline]. Their 15w40 is the only CJ-4 offering remaining.
