Got my A/C working again, for the 7th summer in a row. Yes, it's mid-July.

From your comment its not clear, you are aware that shaving a head on a diesel is a bad thing (unlike a gas engine) since the compression ratio is already 19 to 1 and there is nothing to be gained but plenty to be lost by going higher ?

Diesel head gaskets come in varying thickness's so that the correct distance can be maintained between the compressed valves and the piston. The tdi gaskets are coded for thickness by the number of holes along the side/outer edge of the gasket. Shaving a head and then going back with a standard gasket is not ever to be done.

Thanks SMac. He made my mounts from scratch...as far as customer spec, it probably depends on what needs to be done. I can't speak for Matt but you should give him a call.

Hacked up my seat box to prepare for the R380 install. Need to make a rear flange (bits on order) so that will be pop riveted in to support the rear end of the tunnel, as there's a 3/4" gap.
