      So... because all you guys , Ron sold out of Schrick 268 intake cams, But that has prompted me to experiment with the 272/264 setup. So i will be running this with My Supercharger ( MK4 ) had 272/272 N/A

      Looking forward to these. nice thread.

      Have mine gathering dust while I try to find some time to get them installed (they probably have some more time to gather more dust).

      Did anyone install and/or dyno yet?

      not yet, going to call today or tomorrow for next week. This week was consumed with the suspension upgrades.

      I did do a few PocketDyno+ runs and pulled a 4.31 0-60mph with a 2.0 60ft.

      = my face after first 15 min drive back to work in the car. Just as snappy from a stop, no difference in idle that I could hear, subtle change in exhaust tone, pulls nicely through the midrange, and definitely opened up the top end. I'm looking forward to a nice long "adaptation" drive over the weekend.



      Also, they found this nice gasket on the intake manifold. Glad that is fixed...

      It adapted to hauling 5 passengers around . Not what I had in mind, but the car did continue to feel good even with all that weight.

      lol, yes, ok, the car had 5 people in it. one was driving, thus, technically, not a passenger. < commas ftw

      No Cats Limit your Torque on the car NA, deff get HFC's I have a MK4, but regardless you will feel the difference.

      My old setup was Schrick 272/272, Magnaflow dual 300 HFC's, 2.5 cutback resonated. UM Tune, K&N Intake. They will deff liven up your car

      Finally got mine! Ron ran out of the 268/264 so I had to wait till Schrick produced and sent him more. Now I can't wait to get these things installed...

      nOOb question , when having the 268/264 Cams , is it necessary to re-calibrate the Fuel/air timing ?
