Sweet ride jimbote, when you pulled up I think everyone stopped what they were doing to check you out.
Great GTG, wish I could have stayed longer.
Thanks Andrew for the awesome tune. I have to say the increase in torque from 2K to 3K is incredible.

Spotted someone today in Brevard! Silver MK4 TDI with the vanity plate NVMYMPG haha.
That is a friend of mine that I worked with for about 4 years. We have worked on his car many times and the car is stone stock. The last work was a TB replacement and he is getting 50+mpg consistently since he has owned the car. He is a really good friend and a TDI nut; married to a wonderful woman and has a 2 year old son.:)

Great together! Great to see all the cars especially the caddy with all the work that has gone into it. I picked up a case of PBR 40's on the way home. I did not get to fill up with bioDiesel though. I passed the exit because DieselFueler and I were trying to figure out whose car was better suited for accelerating onto the interstate ;) I can't say we really figured it out.

Awesome pics guys from a great day!

Thank you, Daniel, Landon and Karen for offering your beautiful property for another perfect GTG, the weather must have been ordered well in advance. I always enjoy the great company of fellow TDI'ers especially the many regulars, it feels like a big family reunion.
Chad thanks for the quick delivery with the porta-potty, wished you could have hung out a while, wondered how the bus build is going.

Hope to see everybody at the next GTG.

Thanks to Appalachain Diesel Works for the GTG.

This was our first one and hope to be back next year. Thanks to everyone for answering our questions. Beautiful setting and everyone was really nice and could not ask for a better bunch of people.

Many Thanks to Landon, Daniel and Karen for a wonderful GTG. Thanks also goes out to Bruce for your help and the doggie collar.

Daniel, thank you for getting my block off plate boost leak take care of. I now know next time to give a little extra torque when tightening the bolts.

Sadly, none anymore
I am sorry I could not stick around to witness the injector testing. That looks incredible! What nozzles were being used?
