Replace your stock camshaft for more power, better torque, and more smiles per gallon. This is a brand new unit from European chill cast billet.

We installed this in our own vehicle and we noticed an approximately 100°F drop in EGT (exhaust gas temperature) just cruising on the highway! Considering that highway cruising temperatures are low to begin with, 100°F is a significant drop. It also took us much longer to reach 1500°F during hard acceleration with an aggressively tuned performance setup. Lower smoke output is also typical thanks to the cam's improved airflow.

We highly recommend this setup not only for performance, but also long-term reliability since it keeps everything cooler. Lower exhaust gas temperatures result in a more efficient and longer living engine, this is why VW added coolant channels to the exhaust manifolds on most of their modern turbocharged lineup.

This is also recommended for heavier vehicles such as the Vanagon (T3), Eurovan (T4) and custom 4x4 swaps that will be pushed to their limits and consistently see higher EGTs.

Although this cam is designed for the ALH, it will also drop in most other 1.9L VE TDI engines including ASV, AHU, 1Z, and more. To install and set the cam timing in the older AHU and 1Z engines, you may need to use an ALH style cam locking tool.

We are local to colt cams, who are based out of Aldergrove, BC. Buy with confidence well below the price of the competition, and without duties to boot. Stage 3, 4, race and custom grinds are available upon request.
