Hi everyone,

First post here. Just bought an awesome 92 GTI 2.0L aba bottom end swap with tectonic cam & adjustable cam gear...Havn't decided if I like having the performance cam yet...definitely fun but the rough idle etc is kind of annoying for a DD.

My question is what would be involved switching it back to a stock cam?... if that's what I want to do. Do you just take out the old cam and install the new one or do you have change other parts as well?

Also when I cold start the car I have to rev it up to about 2k for a min or so before it will idle properly without stalling...are there adjustments I can make so that it will at least idle cold?

Thanks....PS im a complete noob to this sort of thing
