Hey all,

I live at 4225 James Avenue North Mplsi MN text call 3202671807 chrisidzerda@gmail.com

I am thinking July 1st.

Women are welcome. You don't have to hang out in the garage but my woman will take care of you.

BY0B get as drunk as you want. We have a guest room if you can't drive.

Grill will be going. Barbequed pork and buns + burgers and brats. Y'all can bring chips, cookies etc. Bring chairs as we have seating outside for 4 + swing for two.

I have a two car garage for people who want to work on their car.

I have VCDS-HEX CAN so I can scan anybodies car.

Maybe Nick or Jon Fettig will come and you can get work done on your car or a tune by Jon.

My TDI won't be running, but I'd love to show up and help someone out if I can. It would also be nice to put some faces to names.

I might be able to come, maybe I can even drag the Mrs with me. I don't think we have anything planned yet.

Yes I was just thinking of poking everyone as it is next Saturday and I need to plan the meat portion and get a body count.

We can seat 9 with little effort but if you bring a folding chair or something that would work. Of course it is BYOB and I will have various non alcoholic drinks in the cooler.

So all that have looked at this would get back to me that would be great. I will put the solid attendees in the first post.

Regretfully, I must repeat my earlier posting that I will be out of town on the 1st and will be unable to attend. :(

Count me in...

Probably won't do any work on my car, the 2015 has barely a thousand miles on it and the 2003 needs new exhaust and that's probably too much to take on in one day.

How much of your exhuast do you need? If it is CAT back that is pretty easy to do. I have a 308 exhaust cutting tool also.

If you are going from the turbo outlet all the way to the back, let's see if anyone volunteers. I have ramps and jackstands.

I have a welder I can bring along pretty easily however not sure if you have a 220v 60A plug.
Nope no 220V 60A plug. But my tubing cutter is a wheeled cutter that you clamp onto the pipe and rock back and forth. The exhaust is 3 bolts at the turbo, a exhaust hanger in the front, a sliding clamp, then the back half to the rear hanger.

I do have 15 A Milwaukee Sawzall.

This kit:

Complete Exhaust System (A4)
Bosal
OEM Part Number: 1J0253058G

If yes then it is pretty easy as both clamps are included. Those are the most likely to fail. The hardest part is the bolts at the turbo, which is not that hard with two people.

Oh noon start, BYOB, maybe bring a chair as we might not have enough seats. Barbequed pork, brats, coleslaw, chip......
