I have a golf with 130,000 miles. I want to improve performance but do not want to shorten the life of my engene. I know that this is nearly impossible.. but..
i was thinking about buying TT High Density Valve springs. They are 70 bucks for an 8v and I also wanted to get new valves while i was at it. Would this help me at all? I want to get a cam down the line but don't have the money for one right now. So what do you guys think? HD Valve springs worth $70?? what are the benefits and downsides of HD valvesprings??
thanks again http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
also... what would labor run me on a thing like this to get them put in...??

Re: Techtonics HD Valve springs... need info and advise.. (GruppeGolf1)

we replaced my 8v springs and put in a 270 over cam at the same time...
so far no problems at all. we did this at 45k or so miles.if you open up your motor for the springs you should do the cam at the same time.. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
