Hi all, I have a 99 GTI vr6 I recently got for a good price due to engine noise. Was still running, but poorly.
Turns out the previous owner didn't torque the camshaft bearing caps properly and as a result the exhaust cam has broken in two. One of the studs was pulled from the head also, can these be purchased ? I'm wondering if there is an update kit to tap and install threaded studs instead?
I'm having trouble finding a replacement anywhere. I'm hoping someone might have an old parts motor they are willing to part with, or anyone knows where I might find a camshaft.
Trying to avoid spending $500 or more on a set of performance cams, and just get this girl running again.
Thanks in advance

Not mine, but here's a link to a motor with rod knock you could probably get pretty darn cheap for the cam! In case the link below doesn't work, put your facebook marketplace to 200km radius in abbotsford and it should show under the search term "mk4 vr6"
