What we feel is the finest sport hydraulic lifter camshaft available. Extensive experience with the VW engine design as well as consistent engine dynamometer testing has resulted in a camshaft that is without question the smoothest, most drivable performance cam you can buy. This cam allows the VW enthusiast to enjoy the benefits of a substantial power increase with no sacrifice in drivability. The AUTOTECH 270 Hydro is the best performing street legal camshaft available. Its idle characteristics have been refined to the point that it idles as if it were a stock cam (15 inches vacuum @ 900rpm). Yet, its full-range power lets you know that it is definitely not stock! Torque increases over stock appear as low as 2500 rpm, continuing without fail until over 6000 rpm. Power gains range from 7 to 9 horsepower depending on vehicle and its state of tune. The AUTOTECH Sport 270 Hydro Cam is ground on an OEM chill-hardened billet. SportTuned Valve Springs are not required, but are highly recommended for the best top-end performance. Fits all 1.8L and 2.0L liter engines up to 1995 with hydraulic lifters, including crossflow heads. Lifetime warranty.Lift: 0.449". Duration: 270° at 0.1mm check, 112° lobe center. The 270 cam is designed for dual valve spring hydraulic lifter 8V Vws such as MK2 and early MK3 OBD1. For 96+ OBD2 MK3s and all 2.0L MK4s you will need to change to our Schrick dual valve spring conversion kit 10-109-605K.
