    We have JMR, or Jtech performance that can advise on choices.

    would a gs2h go in a mk3 AGG? the kent website gives differewnt part numbers for the mk2 and mk3.
    is this just for different lifts and durations or will they physically not fit?

    Will physically fit as far as I'm aware although I never use the MK3 heads just scrap them and use the blocks. Just use MK1 & 2 ones. Probably slightly different grinds to suit the differing std fuel systems, maybe the MK3 has a cat or something?

    Tectonics tuning are in California I think...highly regarded VW tuner in the states...they do a range of cams. I'd look at around mid 270 duration for a regular street driven car on std type injection.

    Going to mate up a 1.8 bottom end to the puny 'EZ' anytime soon, and after driveability from the 8V.
    So far considering the 268 from Schrick, as a simple drop-in, potentially with a mild optimalization to the head too. Good choice?

    What do you guys recommend for a 2.0 8V if I’m to keep the cylinder head 100% OEM? Ideally I would not change springs, lifters, etc... I’d like to keep all of that stock as it came from factory.

    Any suggestions? Maybe a 268 or 272 tops?
    Just wondering?

    Thanks
