      Been there, done that... we'll get it figured out. You still have your stock pump? Maybe we toss it back together w/that and you bring it by your friends at the dealership if things are REAL BAD (aka. cam chewed up). There is TSB for "A" cams....

      It MAY be just software... there was a cold start issue solved by software.

      cam follower is damaged real bad. Cam looks unharmed fortunately. We are going to turn the cam and inspect the rest of the lobe for wear marks. So much for going to MD this weekend.

      ^ Still can't believe that. One of the nicest looking MkV's.

      OP, are those from a 997 911? Real or reps? Those look really sick.

      Dang, so you didn't need adaptors or spacers? Good stuff.

      What are the specs on them?

      Yo rich what’s up man? looking good! I like the Porsche wheels. Did you find out if there is a horse power gain to the new 997 turbo? I hear it is 20 more ponies.

      Update 6/14/08 Miles are 34198 B cam/ newer follower are in my car under warranty now. Stock HPFP is in for now. APR pump was sent out for rebuild cause it was damaged by the follower incident. Andy at APR is doing a pretty damn good job of getting my situation handled quickly. Stage 3 cant go in till i have the pump back of course. I should have it back early next week.

      Possitive note: I am done with the appearance of the car for now. Skirts are installed, what a Pita those were. I may do some minor tweaks here and there to the exterior but I think I am mostly done. Pics to come soon. I want some Dyno plots instead of pics though!!
