A lot of people seem to run into trouble when working with the cams on the 1.8T. They don't get the timing set up correctly. So here is a pic I made while putting together the 1.8T I'm working on.

Pencil,

Thanks for this info.

Question on the chain tensioner, I am seeing some non OE chain tensioners for a bit less that genuine VW/Audi parts.

What is your take on the non genuine cam tensioners?
OEM or GTFO. :D

In a nutshell, I deal with people all the time trying to save a buck on parts and it just doesn't work. Chinese Replacement Auto Parts are a waste of time and money.

No problem, just the OEM chain tensioners are so darn expensive.

I think they are around $600??

Is there anyone that has a repair kit for the part(s) that wear on these tensioners or do you just need to pony up the big cash?
