Hi guys

Looking into cams in the new year, just wondering what ones are reccomended ?

I'll have a miltek cat back, tegiwa manifold, skunk2 pro series intake manifold, skunk2 pro series throttle body, HKS induction and a FD2 oil pump.

Also have a flash pro.

Looking for just drop in ones. Are your TDi ones still the ones that give the best gains ?

Thanks
Paul

Best value is definitely TDI north cams, cams can be risky in terms of gains, you need to fully understand what your buying especially if it's not "tried and tested", you'd need to look at lift, duration, would you need to swap out the valvetrain, could you run full VTC with the cams, would you need pocketed Pistons to run the full VTC or potentially cam gears/pulleys to restrict the VTC or alter overlap, remember that flashpro runs a full VTC sweep at idle so if you chose other cams you would need to then turn the engine over by hand to check your valve clearance, consider also whether the cams would work well with stock compression etc etc etc it can be a minefield

My advice would be to go for the TDI ones they are proven to work with that kind of set up and the price for parts, fitting and mapping is good value too
