    Maybe they did, maybe they didn't? They are shit for communication. Which is why I'm going to use another machine shop from now on.

    So I spoke to Arlington Machine Shop today on the phone. Aaron was awesome to chat with on the phone and made me super comfortable to send him my spare head. I'm going to have him do his Competition valve job, pocket port, knife edge and install GSC oversize valves, GSC bronze guides, GSC springs and all the other good stuff. I think I am going to take this chance to try out the GSC S2 cams as well.

    Should be interesting to see what difference the more aggressive cams, oversize valves, valve job and pocket port makes.

    For all I know the other machine shop didn't do anything to my current head. I'm 100% done with them.

    Bad news, I won't be able to ship my head out for two more weeks and Aaron stated he has about a four week turnaround currently. So... based on my experience the last two years, I might have a working car again in another four months...

    bleh...

    I was originally going with gsc s2s as on paper they would match up well with my turbo choice but ended up with a bad set that i had gotten off someone on one of the forums and couldn't source a set at the time. Ended up with a set of tomei cams which are 270/270 and are only a little milder and so far have worked well so the GSCs should be good.

    I will say this even right after Zabes purchase of a bad set of cams..........

    I have my set of GSC S2 Cams sitting down at WTF, they were supposed to be tested to confirm perfect order. If they are perfect, I would do a steal of a deal on them for you. Would even hold the funds if you wanted to get your own confirmation that they are good to go.

    Just a thought to save you some monies, as I am unsure if I will ever get them installed.

    My loss may be your gain, just let me know. I sent an email to see if they checked perfect or not, will let you know if you are interested.

    To be fair it was the older cast S2s that I had an issue with, not the billet ones.

    I am using the necksgen Rev2 Lite: http://www.necksgen.com/product/rev2lite/

    No hands devices work with OEM belts except for the ones that use your body as the restraining device. I believe simpson makes one.

    Both the HANS and Schroth need 2 shoulder straps to work effectively. Depending on on the model, the Simpson is 3 point compatible.

    There's HANS
    http://hansdevice.com/Home.html

    Schroth has a good one as well

    and the Simpson Hybrid.

    ^ thank you both.
    Just spoke to Schroth. I really like their flex device. very minimalist. I just want to make sure that my holes in the recaros are low enough for the belts to sit properly on there. I am using a 4-point Profi ASM schroth harness

    Same harness I use and my Necksgen Rev 2 works perfectly with it. I highly recommend the necksgen, you can barely tell it's on. The Schroth flex felt bulky compared.

    Necksgen also protects side to side which is great if you don't use a halo seat.

    No updates on the Evo. I was out of town for business and then went on vacation in Tahoe for the rest of last week.

    Today I had some free time and I finished up the tune on my VW Golf Alltrack, if anyone is curious:

    2018 VW Golf Alltrack SEL
    1.8T
    Stock IS12 turbo (dinky!)
    19psi to 12psi
    Eurodyne Maestro custom tune
    Eurodyne Stage1 DSG Tune
    E35 fuel
    Everything else 100% stock.

    I'm actually pretty impressed with the gains seeing that the turbo is so small.
    +50whp/+74wtq
