      any pics? Or if you can bring it out to the Irving GTG on the first Thursday of the month.
      Thanks i appreciate it!

      Ive been working on it a lot more than driving it. I bought it last new years eve, I have put less than 800mi on it since then. I guess i am nervous about driving it around with an expired inspection, here in plano it doesnt take long to get busted.. you guys know how it is

      Thanks! It's still very much a work in progress. It is somewhat drivable now, so I feel better about all the progress ive made.

      heres a build thread i started a while ago-

      http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...5290738-my-16v

      I will be adding to it shortly, I just picked up an 2.0 ABF serpentine conversion.

      My plan is to ditch the A/C and the whole complicated V-belt setup, run dual passat 16v cooling fans, maybe add a proper oil cooler.

      good to see so many new faces in the area....we are thinking of starting a new GTG in the in old spot behind snuffers and next to TGI Fridays.

      Which day to do this is the question. Im voting for Tuesday night or how about Sunday durning the day...like around 12-1pm?? With winter coming hanging out at night can get old real quick. plus we can hut up Brickhouse Bar/resteraunt to watch games or whatever!!

      Let me know what you guys think.

      Im hoping there is a shop around that knows about CIS-E motronic, can help with timing, and or has a sniffer.

      There any friendly inspection places around here?- that will allow a couple passes on the rollers to get my timing dialed in to bring my nox levels down to pass. I think my ign timing might be to blame, or possibly an adjustment to my CIS fuel distributor for high nox.

      would the dealer (boardwalk) be able to dial this stuff in? any of you guys work there or anything?
      head north and try to get an inspection from a non-emissions county

      sources: licensed state inspector, brazos county, 4 years.

      I live in Dallas, work in Plano. Drive a MKVI Golf R that got hit in a parking lot this weekend, I'm going to Progressive to get it evaluated tomorrow, but as I'm sure all of you are, I'm rather particular about this car so I'd appreciate any good body shop recommendations.

      Would also love to meet some fellow euro enthusiasts if there's ever any GTG, I'm new to town and recently returned to the VW scene.

      i'd like to know some good bodyshops myself. although i normally wouldn't suggest it, the best bodywork i've had in Dallas was the Midway/Keller Springs location of Service King believe it or not. Jarrod was my guy there and he seriously took care of me and did great work fixing the last shop's F-up. if you are in the area then at least meeting Jarrod might give you some confidence. but i wouldn't touch the other Service King locations with a 10' pole.

      Im going to try and do this on theThird Tuesday of the month. I think before having it the night before the Big DFW meet was a bit of a killer.
      So I am shooting for July 16th@730 Preston and Park. Between Snuffers and TGI Fridays!
      I am also going to try and work something out with Brickhouse Bar across the street so that if we want to go there for drinks afterwards we can have parking up front available or something...
      I will post up more details as I get them and the closer we get to the night of the GTG.
