For folks with mileage over 60k - have you had to change the spark plugs and/or coil packs? What condition were the spark plugs if you have changed them and were you stage 1/2 or stock?

I've been running APR 91 since basically new and right now I'm at 37k miles - thinking its time to do the plugs/coil packs just to stay ahead of the maintenance since stage 1 demands more out of the factory hardware. The cam follower is on the list as well

You should change your cam follower immediately. 37k even on a stock pump is too long.

Just last week, either here or on vortex, there was a guy who ran his stock-engined follower to 47,000 miles, and it destroyed his engine...cam...valves...head...pump...all of it. Luckily, he got a new replacement engine from VW, but don't count on being that lucky.

I believe it was on the 'tex. The guy had an APR fuel pump - I believe he was stage 1+. We were pretty amazed VW replaced the engine since the guy was running the aftermarket pump, which theoretically puts more wear and tear on the CF.

The original feedback from the dealership tech was that the intake cam seized and pitched the timing belt which was nowhere to be found. I think they finally concluded the cam follower disintegrated and caused the cam to jam. A real cam jam if you ask me.

But anybody who is pushing 30K miles before checking - WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? CHECK IT NOW
