I didn't think my 02 Jetta got plugged in. I thought all diesels were exempt.

If that were to change change it should still pass a plug-in. Checks are disabled in the ECM with the tune. Otherwise it's be a limp mode machine.

Roadside inspection would be the potential issue. I've not heard of that for non-CMVs. Yet.

Edge Insight CTS ordered for gauges.
Tires are at Talmadge, probably end up going over there with the truck once I have it since I don't think I can get (6) 245r19.5s in/on/around St. Michael comfortably.

Nothing else is an immediate 'must'

THMotorsports has the best price on them by $20, btw, plus has a 10% discount coupon on them.

it was bone stock to 320k. has 30k on the delete and tuner (and turbo, injectors, head job). hopefully it's gentle and all good, from what I've been told about how it drives and absolutely can't be made to smoke, I expect it is.

Doing some reading on autoexpiditer, the g56 doesn't have a better rep than the nv4500... case flex leads to spun bearings. there are case girdles and coolers available.

cross that bridge when I come to it!

Girdle is interesting but pricey. What's the feedback on them?

Would you go with the 13 speed again or something more simple like my 6 speed
