Which Camshaft would you choose?

Postby nOrcAL7 » Mon Jun 04, 2007 10:28 am

Okay, I’m planning on picking up a camshaft and wanted your opinions or experiences on these types of camshafts. Since we live in California. I don’t want worry about passing smog. I already know that I want.. a mild hydraulic cam… say 260 or 268. The camshafts I’m really interested are…. Autotech, Neuspeed, Schrick & TT. If anyone has any other types of camshafts they’re familiar with. Please let me know.

The only variable I’m looking at purchasing a camshaft is pricing vs quality. I was told to go with the Neuspeed camshaft since they would be a good choice and wouldn’t worry about having to pass smog. Could someone please shed some light on which camshaft I should choose before I make my final decision. Again everyone thanks for your help.


Oh btw the camshaft is for a MK2 GTI 8v - digifant II

can't go wrong with TT, you should call them and ask if their cams are smog or CARB legal. and the 268 is a factory high performance cam.

Ok, so I've decided to go with autotech cam. I send them an e-mail and gave them an idea of what or how I want my car to perform/run. The response from them wasn't too convincing. So... if anyone can tell me their experiences from the 270 or 260 hydro cam. I'll be forever in your debt.. :bowdown:
