Question For those with HPFP's....

just curious if any of you replaced the cam follower at the same time? I know your mileage was probably low, but just curious about this.

I was planning on doing this as it would require no more time and the follower isn't that expensive.

Your thoughts?

Thanks.

I change my cam follower at 5000km now with Stage 4. When i was with fewer mods i changed it at 8000km. Better to be safe than sorry.

Interesting! I "thought" this issue was addressed in our cars vs the older models of it......

I think it is always going to be an issue because that is a consumable part. Or a wear item, I can't make sense of the idea I have in my mind.. Like breaks eventually they will ALWAYS wear out?

i think its best practice to change both, the MKV issue was due to soft metals used in the folower.

ourr is a 4 lobed cam where mk5 was 3 lobed iirc

MK6 TSI Fuel rail, cam, cam follower, HPFP, Fuel pressure sensor, injectors and components

I think you are confusing the Golf R (FSI) with the GTI (TSI). The golf R still uses a friction cam follower.

be happy it said TSI and not FSI or TFSI. Although the TSI has its issues its a much bettter system then tha FSI. Although the TFSI has the audi valve-lift system.

What it says on the engine cover is misleading. It is the same engine as the pre-2008.5 GTI. It has a timing belt and a friction follower. It's the same engine that has FSI on the cover in the older GTIs.
