KMD Uprated Cam Follower - Stage 2+ Users Please Read!
After my OEM cam follow broke and damaged my cam shaft I have felt it necessary to inform everyone that there is an uprated part to avoid this ever happening. KMD make an uprated cam follower out of the same material that the OEM cam shaft is made of, hence reducing or stopping wear altogether.
Take from KMD's site:
After months of R&D, KMD Tuning is pleased to present another product to our 2.0T line up.
Typically, customers donít pay mind to their cam follower and as you all know, the factory cam follower can cause fuel cuts when worn down. Additionally, from our experience and testing, when using an after market fuel pump the cam follower can wear down even quicker then normal.
With that in mind KMD designed a follower made from the factory material, hardened to the same spec, and is .028 larger then factory. We also eliminated the factory c-clip (one less thing to fail). The reason we decided to use this specific increase was because after trying larger and smaller sizes this was the most efficient without causing cam wear.
At 10k the follower thickness was at .019 and at 20K it was at the factory size, which now gives you an extra 20K and most importantly, piece of mind! This testing was done over a period of 8months on 4 diffrent vehicles. They varied from stock to stg3 500hp cars. When running a stock car the wear on the follower was even less then stg1 vehicle.
I have found a seller on eBay that is prepared to do a discount on a bulk buy. The followers are normally $90 + shipping but I believe if we get a good amount in we can reduce that.
$90 maybe a lot for a follower but its a hell of a lot cheaper than £800 worth of repairs.
