Need S54 specialist near Winnipeg, MB!!!

Hey guys,

Need someone who can figure out my car already. It's not running properly on the VT2-500 setup. Rebuilt the VANOS this summer and still having issues - unsure if it's VANOS related, but it could be timing.

Honestly at this point I'm ready to let a professional with *experience* step in. I do NOT want to take it to the local dealer, nor a couple of the euro shops here in town.

Any suggestions? The car can be driven, it just doesn't idle properly and I believe it is still running rich. I would drive it within a reasonable distance (even Minneapolis to be honest) if anyone has nay really good suggestions.

Thanks in advance!

Zac

Yeah I've toyed with the idea of going back, but it's a bit of a drive too. Done it many times, but ideally there's someone in the city here that I don't know about.

Look into the cost to transport your car to Calgary too - not as much as you may think...

Yep,
Would be my first thought, give it back to the guys who did the initial install.

It would make the drive just fine I'm sure. But yeah, I'm gainfully employed at a Honda dealership so shipping it there isn't hard

I think it may end up this way next year. It will sit over the winter where I can finally tinker with it: new garage. Just gotta insulate the thing over the next month.

Hey Caddyshk!!!

They are not happy. But in view of the torture they put my wife and I through to get approval to build the garage, and their subsequent absolutely ignorant treatment of my wife, the more it upsets them, the better I like it. See my PM!!!

I now have a fine garage for my car, plenty of storage, and a damn high fence so I don't have to look at the ugly buggers and can prevent them from using the side of my property to access their garden, which I think was their underlying motivation all along.
