  1. Ivan's transmission came with the shift tower. You will still be having to use your brackets and everything else that goes with it. It is easy enough to make your shifter have a much shorter throw. Mine was reduced by about 25% just by removing the pin and moving it closer in to the midline of the bracket. Had to reshape the counter weight just a little for clearance of the shift end link. It is not the 40% reduction of the Dieselgeek or ECS shifters, but for the price,
  2. Yeah, I was out fishing with Aaron and Andrew from TuneMyEuro a couple weeks ago and he was telling me about that 5th gear that the guy was trying to claim as warranty. When they pulled it apart, the gear was black from heat. We are running the Redline "cocktail" in Ivan's transmission and it is REALLY nice. One of the fluids does not look like ANY transmission gear oil I have ever seen. IT was very thin and opaque, not clear like normal fluids. We did the break-in with the LiquidMoly and drove back from Florida then made the change to the Redline once we got back. The shift
  3. Just make certain to follow their break-in procedure and specific fluids to maintain your warranty. The fact you get a 2 year warranty on that transmission is incredible! You might ask Aaron about the special cocktail of Redline fluids for the transmission. It is what he suggested in Ivan's transmission and his shifts really nice!
  4. you going to be heading down to see Aaron or is he shipping the transmission up to you?
  5. You UhOh on TDIClub? Saw your post there then this one. I think I've got an extra but I'm in SW WA.
  6. Had to go back and edit state list as we went through Yellowstone again. We actually drove the same road it looks like that video was from which is across the N of the park. All the bison where there and people were just stupid, especially the guy standing out in the middle of them taking pictures. I did yell at him that stupidity hurts... he just looked at me funny. I'm not sure he understood the language (middle east/India) Our only close encounter was a big bull walking down the middle of the road toward us. Ivan was like what do i do. Told him to pull off road as much as he could even
  7. 4000 or so miles in under 5 days. This is our view. We hit WA ID MT WY ND MN WI IL IN KY TN GA and FL. now Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  8. Clear blue sky in ND right now Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  9. Joe, not going to have any recon for you on your route. We are staying further N than you would want to go. Info i passed on back in April is probably still current though. Most of those projects looked long term... especially in colorado on I25. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  10. Ahhh, we're going... leaving Saturday. Making a pass through to flip the bird at a certain bull bison (and a particular ranger, if we happen to see him) on our way to Florida. Ivan's school is having on campus classes and he has to be there for ROTC on the 14th. Literally, we are only cutting through the very N part, mainly to drive Beartooth Pass during the say when we can actually see it. Hate to see the party cancelled as we were going to try to swing by before heading across the Cascades. Next year.
  11. Spent the day with ivan installing my E- spec headlights. The fog lights are all wired in and functional. Then we added a special touch. What is more obnoxious than a lifted ford with air horns? Answer... a lifted Golf with 4 note El Dorado horns! [emoji41] All buttoned up and off the ramps now. Been a great day!

  13. SOLD! First person that came and looked at it (drove down from Olympia) bought it.
  14. 0.5 Big Bang Injectors. We both have them. I hope he likes them as much as I like mine. I've had mine for a couple years now.
