Best Tips for Breaking in a New Camshaft
http://www.horsepowermonster.com -- The
first few minutes of operation will determine the long-term survival of
your flat-tappet camshaft. More agressive lobe designs, stronger
valvesprings and changes to the additives in modern motor oils makes a
"wiped" cam lobe much more likely than in the days of classic muscle cars.
These are a few very important tips for properly breaking in your high
performance flat tappet camshaft.

But first things first: to get some power now, I BEEFed up the TOP END:

1988 VW Fox Wagon, (2.0 8V ABA, CIS)
I sold my '85 Skylark and found this really neat little '88 Fox for a
commuter. Just about everything is covered in the video. I always end up
with bad video clip organization, so feel free to ask questions. I am new
to Volkswagens, and am still learning, so be easy folks!

What's up VW crew, my mk3 was in a rainy day fender bender few weeks ago,
just finished swapping fenders and wheels. Got wheels from Ben from Vdub up
here in Southern Maryland. I just need lip, new headlights and new coils
when get a chance.
VW MkIII Golf GTI 2.0l 8v ABA Neuspeed Supercharged 20-100mph
'97 VW GTI 2.0l 8v with Neuspeed Supercharger @ ~6psi non-intercooled.
This is my daily driver, not my track car.
If I wanted fast[er] (relatively speaking), I would've turboed it.
Instead, I went with a reliable, roots-type blower from Neuspeed.
It's non-intercooled (hence, low-Boost application) and I installed in on
Saturday afternoon with a 6-pack of beer.
Can't beat that!
2.0 liter, 2-valves per cylinder, single cam, ABA engine.
Neuspeed roots-type Supercharger,
non-intercooled @ 6psi.
Other mods include:
260/256 cam, lightweight valvetrain, TT Exhaust, lightweight stock diameter crank pulley
(custom billet- made by a VW friend of mine). that's it for mods that
effect power output.
