    If your going with the torquer2 make sure you are getting good springs and new pushrods. Im not sure about that cam. ive heard some say that it isnt a good DD and others say its very driveable.

    I bought the 228r from texas speed. I havent installed it yet but ive heard from several people that its a great street cam.

    Above is one of two cams i should of got instead of the 224 i have.
    Youll need new springs, hardened push rods, ported oil pump, LS2 timing chain and a tune.
    I would go with a 114 lsa.
    Headers are also needed in order for the cam to breath and live up to its full potential

    what are you running for heads?
    I'm running the stock 241's but ported and polished the hell out of them and I think that added more than the cam swap did. I've got a 220/224 .570/.580 112lsa in my a4

    i have that cam with a 112 lsa but its not in till this week or next. if you get it i would say get it in the cam kit. the beter of the two whit the duel spring. and add the posted oil pump as you will be inthere any way. and you will need a tune to run it. that cam is the big end of what texas-speed recommends. and just more then comp recommends mostly bolt on car.

    definately replace your oil pickup O ring and be very careful not to pinch or cut the new one
