  1. I have Vag com. What do you need?
  2. Hey all, can someone please recommend a machine shop that you have used and had a good experience with? Or an individual who works out of his/her home? I need to have some machining done on 2 coilover sleeves and I believe a lathe is what is needed to complete the job. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated
  3. Anyone know the car? I ran in to him on the highway a little while back. Car definitely surprised me. I am curious if anyone knows the car and the mods?
  4. Mike, thanks for the reply. Just sent you a PM
  5. Thanks for the response. Eurowise was one of the shops I had called. They've done work on my 540 and have always been great. When I had initially called, I inquired about a flush. The response I got was they don't do flushes on these transmissions. This is what prompted me to look elsewhere. If something has recently changed and Eurowise is willing to do the work, I would love to bring them the business. I have never heard of Import Specialties before. Have you ever had service there? Any feedback you can provide? Thanks!
  6. I am looking for an independent shop who is experienced with Audi CVT transmissions. I have called around and it seems once most shops hear "CVT" they start finding excuses not to work on the car, LOL. Let's get the obvious out of the way. The Audi CVT is quite possibly one of the worst transmissions ever. But the car is in outstanding condition and the price was very cheap. When the transmission is not acting up, the car is a dream to drive. I have probably put about 40-80 hours in to research and am about 99% confident that the issue lies with the TCM. The car is a 2002 Audi A6 3.0L.
  7. Well put together video. The UGR Nera shop car once put down 1937whp, or so I was once told...
  8. 800HP stock turbo? On turbos that start building torque at less than 1500RPM?
  9. Do you know where he dyno'd, or on what dyno? Dynojet, Mustang, DynoDynamics, etc?
  10. Soooooooo how about them thar numbers?
  11. I'd love a fun run with the 545, but I'll need to do a little preventative maintenance first. Maybe in about 3 weeks?
  12. Whatever happened? Any updates? Were you able to get the data off? If not hit me up. I can likely get that data off for you.
  13. Great thread. So what happened to the videos? Did I miss it somewhere?
  14. I may have some at the house. I'll have to check and see. I'll let you know.
  15. Sorry I missed this one. We'll have to do another one. Maybe on a Friday or Saturday?
