Hi guys

Things became very interesting this weekend. Yarrow thorne mainly deal with vws, late model audis and subarus opened a nice shop in Providence RI this weekend.  This person has got it in head that he wants to be the next dalback(you can tell). He's got alot of money, a house in south hamptons Ny, a hanger in MA, etc. Ironically the Dalback golf was sappose to come to this shop this weekend but dalback is stuck back in sweden.  His golf is making trips through the U.S. to all the major shows. 

I am looking into all my options for finishing the coupe.  I need a battery box made and the downpipe modified.  If it goes into the shop for this, most likely I will have them build me a custom 2.5 or 3inch exhaust, and also weld in the connections for the Egt.  There are some other stuff too, but as of right now this is up in the air.  It was nice for the fact I could tell he was into quite a bit... I know he knows that my car would be good for his business.  I am not a fan of having my car labeled as a companies car but I need to get stuff done thats out of my hands and if I can work something with him, so be it.  

He's a good person and most likely will be taking a trip to my house to check out my coupe and also offered to trailer it to his shop for me.

I'll keep you guys posted but I think this is potentially a good thing for me.


P.S. the shop has a 4 wheel dyno ;-)
