Archive: Looking forward to seeing this at the 2016 TDIFest

Posted By on April 20, 2016


In an email exchange with Andrew Rodriguez of, he hinted that he’ll have a few new products up in Wisconsin at the 2016 TDIFest this Labor Day. One item that caught my eye was a billeted chunk of aluminum "goodness" as the marketeers say — he knew what he was doing sending it to me. I can’t wait to see it, as well as some of his other new exhaust items, and maybe I even add this EGR Race Pipe to my BMW X5 35d shopping list.
