      would deff like to see what this cam does. I've tried the 268 260 and it was great midrange but felt like it died after 6000rpm then I ordered a 272 270 cam from schrick and it pulls to 7000 without a problem. I never played with cam timing on this but probably would be even better with a little tuning. I think ima try a 270 for the hell of it to see the difference since I have one laying around

      I'm looking into getting one of these. I just got my ABA up and running this morning NA with insane head work an a 268, thought it felt great. I want to see how your cam runs NA with my Zornig SRI then I'll add my turbocharger

      Hi,first of all!! Has someone bolt this cam? Seems like a good cam and with 114 lobe centers there is no boost going out the exhaust,so it keeps the powerband in check.from my readings i've learned that a 114 lc would make the idle,low end torque but having a 276 duration will go up,i'm thinking 3,000-3,500 rpm's its going to go "on cam"still with a supercharger i would supose since the engine having boost at low levels should be fun,will see how it performs in my g60 with 68mm,anyone with some input please do share,Roderick!!

      I have this cam in my GT with the BBM stage 3 peaking 1.4 BAR. I love it. When I compared it to the 268/260 the kit came with, the 276* looked huge..

      Idle is great, better than when I was N/A with my TT 276* street/race. Pulls to the cut-off very hard (Idk what RPM it is, it's past 7k RPM on the cluster). Low end is a little.. well, I can't tell you if I noticed a difference between my old cam because I wasn't running the Lysholm. I've found that I don't need to tune my camgear at all to bring the low end back like I needed to do with my original N/A cam, but instant 1.4 BAR of boost is the reason for that.

      now obiously i would and will need the uprated springs, and i will be running new lifter also, so they wear in together,

      im running a obd 1 head, and when my bigger build starts, (after i have a second vehicle) the head will come off and get fully worked.

      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.
