Re: [Fwd: Formally Northern California Turbo]-Turbo Engineering

   The new name of this company is Turbo Engineering. If anyone has additional
   experience with them please let me know. I also forgot to mention that I
   got a plug in for the Q-list and Holly wasted no time telling me there may
   be a discount to the list if q-listers send their turbos to Turbo

I got my K24/S4 turbo (UrQ upgrade) from Northern California Turbo lo
these many moons ago. I was obviously the first Audi/UrQ/NutCase they
had dealt with, but once I convinced the guy that I knew what I was
doing (Ha! Fooled him!) in mixing Audi parts, he thought it was a neat
idea and said in that case he would go ahead and order a whole bunch
of the K24s...(of course it took 4 months! Grrr! but it was half the
price of best Audi discount price I could find...and pretty much covered
the cost of the new/additional plumbing).

I'm glad to hear they're still around, and doing Audiistic stuff.

I'd have no problem recommending them, if they are the same bunch.
