Not bad....some changes in the combo could easily push it over 400whp as it should.

So if it had 243's it seems like that wouldve been higher. But its just dyno numbers afterall, who knows maybe the OP will reply lol.

It sucks that on your website the comparison time slips have a 2.0 and a 2.2 60' lol. Guy shouldve got you a 2.0 60 slip!
Its the OP here! Bottom line is different cars, different dynos, different days. It's just a number. This is now my 2nd summer with this cam, and all I can say is its a huge improvement over the GM version of it. This car is so much fun to drive! It drives just as good as the stock cam did but with a nasty idle and so much more power. I have had zero drivability issues or sewing machine noise with this cam.
A guy I work with has a 1999 a4 TA that has a different cam, but was tuned at my same tuner. He put down 412 to and 389 tq. We roll raced twice from 30 mph, and I walked him both times by a car at 90 mph.
All I can say is I would take ths cam all day long over the GM version. Sure there are cams ot there that make more power, but I wanted a "set it and forget it" cam that made good power and was easy on the valve train.... This is it!

My thoughts exactly. its not worth chasing a dyno number over driveability on a street car, nor is it worth beating up your valvetrain.

Been back to the track?

No, I didnt make it this year. 3 kids and 70+ hrs a week at work kept me busy. I will hope to make it next year.

Got my car started 😁. Idle is at around 750, tr6 plugs at .040. Pcmforless tune seems to be good. Stall feels a little more loose vs stock cam. It's relearning still but driving nicely. Haven't gotten on it really, the 2.73 rear needs to go.
