I'm surprised no one has said 'VW'...

I think the cam is £380 odd alone, and the followers £18 each give or take.

Dont forget the bearings either!

Cheap alternatives are normally on fleabay for £300 ish all in.

Is yours shot?

Try e-bay mate... I just got a complete head with cam,lifters,injectors and tandem pump for less than £200.. its from a 130bhp skoda..

I replaced my cam with genuine vw parts less than 40k ago and it needs replaced again. Thats why I bought the replacement head.

also try here http://vwenginerecon.co.uk/index.html

Apparently they are the same.

Not sure if there gone but it starting to sound a bit tappy on cold, a little less on warm.

How long should it take a good garage to change over the cams including lifters and shell bearings?
