    Hi, I'm on my 2nd MK4 Jetta TDI. The first had the BEW PD now I'm with an ALH code and the 5 speed I actually wanted.

    I'm looking forward to learning more about diesels. In the past, I've rebuilt turbo rotary motors, then I got into transmissions, now diesel engines and normal gas engines so I can't wait!

    I got a Ross Tech cable gifted with the first car by the seller, a second one on the way when I got the 2nd car (that I'll need to get gone) and it'll be nice to get ideas and share the experience with other like minded people.

    I'm picking up on this whole concept quickly but my father posed a question to me (life long gear head and damn good gas engine mechanic) to explain why he doesn't "do" diesels that's still got my mind turning (I'll figure it out soon enough): "the whole injection system is mechanical, so how do you shut it off?"

    I'm mostly here to learn, I'm planning to do a good, strong street build in time.
