Cam follower wear isnt an issue for the TSI engines because it uses a roller follower design.

I just was under the impression they go when tuned do to higher fuel pressure? My hpfp went early and I donít remember but Iím pretty sure the follower was ok.

The FSI tuned will wear through a cam follower quicker. As for the TSI, it's not much of a concern.

Right, I haven't heard of the TSI's roller CF being an issue. Our FSI solid B4$t4rD$ have cost me an additional $400 to date replacing them every 10k miles. Now, with the switch in oil I can go 20k miles
