Re: Good Chip and good Cam for 99.5 golf 2.0 (flavin)

Dude I had a hell of a time trying to get a decent cam to work in my 2.0 in my NB. Seems the new system is so picky that anything much more than stock causes CELs and sometimes a weird limp mode. I got so tired of trying to get my 2.0 to run better I decided to sell it. Sorry to bring bad news but it seems like they are having much more luck with the Superchargers on the 2.0s in the MK4s than any other kind of tuning.

Without opening up the motor, I've enjoyed the performance and sound I have from my P-Flow, ABD Big Bore, and Remus application-specific exhaust with a TDI no-resonator mid-pipe. I don't think the Big Bore is good for any hp, but this set-up sounds sweet and pulls pretty strong. Plus, you never have to run any risks from doing mods to the internals.

flavin, dude you should call TechTonics and ask about cams. The reason no one has issues with the NS 256 cam is because its very close to stock.
