Cam Follower concern

Hi everyone,,,

I have heard that Cam Follower on Golf R - Stage 2+ need to be replaced between time to time, as it might destroy the engine if broken!!

So is it right???

Anyone had an issue with the Cam Follower

Cam follower is a normal wear item, like brake pads. There are MANY threads on this topic, some of them very recent, please search for those threads.
