    big cam with high miles?

    I know alot of people on here have put cams in higher mileage motors but most of the ones Ive seen have smaller cams.
    I was already planning on a mild cam this winter but I just ran across a real good deal on a set of AFR heads so I was going to go with a bigger cam now.
    I have 97k on my 98 A4... You guys think thats to many miles on the stock bottem end for something nasty like the magic stick 4?

    98 formula

    since you have a 98 a I would do some research on rod bolts. It seems that he earlier models had problems with them when running a large cam such as an ms3/4 cam. I have a 98 with Tsp 5.3 heads and tr224/112 cam. About 3months ago I had Kateck rod bolts installed,just in case I put in a Ms type cam

    I'd do some type of leakdown test or compression test to see how healthy the motor is.
