ok. well i just bought a set of obx cam gears cam very fast. but the problem now is that, the holes to big and also it sticks out 1-2cm out. now i had contacted the ebay guy and he is a previous mk3 owner and he said that the N/A cams and the turbo cams are different as in the camgear seat. well i just want to make sure this guy isnt joking around. and have any of you guys used a set of obx cam gears???

I tend to stay away from OBX engine parts. Headers and Exhaust are okay.

I had the exact same problem a couple of years a go. If it is the same person from N. california, I tracked him down like a dog and finaly got a refund... I did a tax search on the address, then I contacted the owner of the property, who was his land lord. He freaked out and sent me my refund...

I got the AEM's and they fit with no problem......

Save your money and spend it on something a little more important than cam gears, unless you have a serious race car where the cam timing actually is a big deal.

So your spacers go between the cam and the cam gear to move it out?
