Um... everything that was in your car before will work fine, but just to make sure. What motor did it have before? Is it a GTI?

Just make sure your air flow plate is 80mm and you're set. If it's the smaller 60mm you'll want to find an 80mm replacement.

An 80mm shouldn't be hard to find, you can find them in 83, 84 gti's and gli's, and I'm pretty sure all cis cariolet's from 84. If you can't find one I probably have one in my garage, it was out of one of mk1 gti's I used to have, I'm almost posotive I still have one. It's doing me no good so let me know.

Solid head: TT 280/276

Hydro head: TT 276

Both really kickass cams. Both should use TT sport valve springs.

the bunny is running

shes running but i didnt use the 2.0 cause i sold it for a low miles 1.8 with 14,000 on it and put it in its is as strong as the 2.0 with 140,000 i will eventually get the 2 litre and the big cams i just figure get the handling aspect working cause all 4 struts are shot the springs on it have 4 coils cut the kid who had it before me has it all bosched up. but she runs i eliminated the a/c and p/s,put a tt cam gear,blue ignitors,and denso iradium plugs,msd ignition coil etc removed rear seats and spare got all black interior.and got some stylish 13 inch steels for it.I smoked a honda civic si with work done i was proud.ill repost when the gti big valve head,cam,nitrous,and suspension is on. :D
