      Yes, but that's for the solid lifter converted, big valve head....the one that's going in the mk2. I might switch it up and sell the jetta once I finish the VR and drive that daily. If that happens I would throw this cam in my girls car and turbo that.

      Meh, that cam is weak. Just get the 276 wide lobe and be done. And big valves are near worthless unless you have a performance intake mani and a tubular exhaust manifold with an exhaust to match.

      TT have any of these 276 wide lobe center cams in stock? Plan on ordering one here really soon. Have a fully built head that previously had a TT288 when it was NA but its boosted now. Have always ran the stock cam with boost and think I would benefit from this cam up top where I need it.

      i'm not sure they make them in small batches. you would more than benefit. you'd cream your pants.

      I called them about a month ago and they had two in stock, but i ended up buying mine from NGP because they were 10% off... and i got the last one. I would call TT and see if they have those 2 still

      100% positive I checked it as soon as it got to my house, on their website they had it listed under mk3 8v FI cams I called in when I ordered and the salesmen said they had only gotten a few in stock and this was the last one

      Get this cam people!

      My car runs ~1.4 bar [on my bbm supercharger] and i love that cam. I still have the 268/260* that came with the kit, but i didn't even bother with it as i have already run a car with a 268/260 and i could tell the power difference between the 2 cams was huge.

      My car pulls to 7200 rpm so quickly, if i don't watch the tach very, very carefully, i hit the limiter. Mk3 clusters = suck. Even with an abf cluster i still hit the cutoff occasionally.

      dyno tuning coming soon, along with a new c2 chip burn with a 8000 rpm cutoff, depending on how much power i make over the curve and how much i tune my cam-gear and all that non-sense. Hoping for around 250whp at the least. If my goals aren't met i will be buying the bbm forged piston set, and getting a custom pulley made to run more boost.
