Hi Everyone,

I am wanting to put some hot camshafts in my Mk1 GTI , type 3-4. (mark 1 gti, 86-88)

My cylinder head flow heaps with a potential of @195bhp, but I am chasing @130-140bhp so I can maximise the torque.

I have some specifications for a camshaft profile. But I would appreciate some feedback on other camshaft profiles that others have been using.

One camshaft I am looking at using has;
0.427" lift
74-50 ex
54-70 in
104 degrees phase
304 degrees advertised duration

The second camshaft profile has the following specifications;
0.303" lift
73-34 ex
34-73 in
no details on the phase
287 degrees advertised duration or 239 degrees duration at 0.050" lift (hydraulic)

Any suggestions on camshafts that are equal or close to these profiles?
Also, brands and where I can buy them.
Also, are billet blanks available now?
