      So I am starting to realize this city sucks for VWs , and I am going to have to widen my search area. My car is in Alton, and I am trying to get it fixed before the snow starts.
      The head on my mk4 is toast, so I am needing to swap heads . I've got a replacement head, but need to get the old one off to salvage the valves and lifters out of it. I've got new springs, guides and Ti retainers, but lack the tools to replace them all. So I am looking for a reputable shop or person to do that stuff for me. I am not opposed to making a drive if the shop/person is good at what they do.
      Any input would be much appreciated

      Ted Brogan (not his real name) up near Chicago is a VW tech. Basically, a vw god. We also have a tech here in town that does side work, but I've never used him outside of warranty work. Not sure how he feels about doing a ton of side work.

      if the head is toast how do you know the valves are still good? if you are going as far as ti retainers and new guides you may as well have bought a used complete head off someone.
      I can color match anything; marker lights, reflectors, interior parts ect. PM for references and quotes.

      It's called a forum. You type stuff and talk to others using the internets. Sorry.... I had to say it.... I'm such a smart azz.

      I know....Connor is mimicking me lifting weights. He is trying to roll two 25lb weights. I keep shewing him away, but he gets pissed. I don't want the poor guy to get a hernia.
