Who cares about dude in audi... 440+ hp out of a 1.8t is wicked awesome. Great job!Well in all honesty people have taken the 1.8T quite a bit higher. And there have been huge power numbers from other 4 cyl engines. There is a guy on the Audi forums that has a 600+ hp 1.8T A4. Not nearly as reliable I'd say 400HP is about the edge of the power spectrum for keeping anything close to reliable.
Not to be a dick but, the A4 has the same engine, and further more the Quattro makes it easier to put it down. We should all learn from each other. I know some Audi owners have to pull their noses out of the air and realize that the Passat can be as much as a power house as the A4 can be. All the same nice numbers. One more thing the A4 is heavier and sucks up more hp through the awd, so you need more hp to do the same amount of work.Who cares about dude in audi... 440+ hp out of a 1.8t is wicked awesome.

mike is that what happened to 034 at time attack?Yes they are a combo of 2 sets that CAT offers, the intake from the 52 and the exhaust cam from the 51. Just a bit agressive for a street car and can cause low vacuum at idle or when trying to slow the car down while at idle.
BobQ did a test of all the cat cams on a engine dyno, 58/52 only made more power in the very high rpms when making very big hp numbers. The more mild CAT cams made more power down low and in the midrange. If the cams are too big you make less power thru the whole power band if your not making enough power up high to take advantage of them.
I have seen plenty of people that have had the timing chain gear wheel bolts back out, even after making sure they were tight and using locktite. One even had it happen twice before removing the cams completely. A while back they also had a issue with the Keyway. Just some reasons I didn't sell off my Schricks and stick a set of CAT cams in, just hard for me to risk a fully built motor/head on a $600 part.
