Just checked webcamshafts website and I think the valve lift of the 86a is too small (11.05mm). Turbo's love valve lift is my current experience.
There's probably a reason Webcam advertises their 119 as a turbo cam...
I would advise to change the cam to one with about half an inch lift (12,7mm)
1.7mm lift difference is A LOT!

Just my 0.02 cents worth of friendly advise

Youīre right about turbos loving high lift,I might trade it in for my original choice the webcam 163.I havenīt really decided yet.I like the 86a because itīs a "quiet" cam and easy on the valve train and still pull to 7K.As you know choosing the right cam is always a challenge.What doesnīt make it any easier is following your experiences and seeing and driving with Arminīs 2 liter turbo with a low (11 mm) cam and the performance that his engine has.Itīs actually not that spectacular riding in Arminīs turbo and you think at first itīs kind of a pooch,then you glance over at the speedo and youīre doing 260K/mh.His car doesnīt have the snap or agressivenesse that we see with the type 1s i.e. 2276 or so.But itīs just incredibly fast.Itīs a ticket magnet...

A very small update: The CU heads are back from glasbead blasting.To my surprise,they are in much better shape than I thought! Today they are getting shipped off for porting,seats,valves etc.

Oil squirters to cool the pistons.Simple but effective

Thought so, but how are those fixated? Mine sit much higer up and into the bearing saddle.

The saddle is tapped and the squirters are screwed in.The squirters are the tips from a wire welder.Iīve seen others use grease nipples/fittings aswell.

guys, what size do you think is best for the hole in the squirters? And do you have a closer look picture of them?

There are different options.My case uses the tips from a wire welder with an M5 thread.Location and angle are the key to make it work properly,though.

Xellex,
I use the squirters from a 911 turbo. Those also have a check valve inside so your oil pressure doesn't drop at (hot) idle. They open at 2 bar or there about

Mark,
Did Remmele install these for you?

Tnx,
Walter

No, Remmele uses the Porsche squirters also IIRC Most of his engines do not have oil squirters.Armin did the casework - itīs one of his cases I bought from him.I gave him my case as a "trade in".So he deserves the merit on this
