Will pay cash and beer for some help.

I ordered the VCG and cam seal kit from blauparts.com and will be doing this myself b/c the indy shop wanted $900 total. If anyone is in VA, near Richmond and would be so kind to help, I would be willing to pay a small fee and provide food and beers!! Let me know ASAP.

If you still havn't gotten around to doing it, i'd be willing to help. I need to do the same on my B5. The catch i'm 17 so i'd understand if my inexperiance on cars would negate the point of help. either way good luck:thumbup:

Ok...time to update my page.

First mod, looking at GIAC for a chip, can't seem to get an answer though...I don't think the 2004 W8 is supported. My ECU is 07D 901 018 AP.

Thinking about a sharkfin antenna, Short Shifter and maybe suspension...I'm liking the smooth ride right now.

Down the road, exhaust upgrade, get some nice summer wheels and keep the OEM BBS's as the winter set and then she will be good to go.:thumbup:

If you have a 6 spped I doubt it. If you have a TIP then GIAC might have a chip.

I went to the local Indy who works with GIAC and they uploaded my code...from the ECU and are suppose to be writing something for me...not sure if I want to be the guinea pig??:crazy: It's been a month, I guess I should call the Indy guy and see if he got anything back yet.
