Hi, I want to know what's the difference between '90 8v GTI cam than '90 8v Golf cam, I ever heard that only things who make difference between them is dual downpipe & Reccaro seats, and some other body things. Well, just to know if cam swapping from GTI to Golf isn't to bad ? ( If they are not same
)

Re: Difference between GTI cam & standard cam (QcGTI)

the euro cam is about .410 lift and the american is about .390 with a shorter duration.....if your considering a cam change go with an aftermarket ...you can run about .435 lift without coil bind (coils start making contact)

Re: Difference between GTI cam & standard cam (reillymk2)

Yeah I know that an aftermarket is better, but not cheaper.. ! Cheaper upgrade is Euro GTI cam(about 40$CAN), but where we see on cam that is really an EURO ? measuring with micrometer ? or elsewhere printed on it ?
thanx !
