When installing an Integrated Engineering billet cam gear on your race engine, an ARP cam gear bolt and an EKagrip friction disk are recommended to keep the timing components in place under high load/high RPM use. With the added stress of larger cams and stiffer valve springs, the factory interface can become weakened and fail under high RPM use. We offer this full cam gear kit to make the installation process simple, with all of the needed parts included. Purchase together and save!

Integrated Engineering / ARP Cam Gear Bolt
The timing setup on the 1.8T engines has always been a concern for high HP and high RPM use. With upgraded valvetrain and higher RPM, there is much more stress on the cam pulley keyway. This added stress can result in catastrophic engine damage, which can lead to bent valves or even destroyed pistons and cylinder heads. With much testing and development, we have worked with ARP to offer an aerospace grade cam pulley bolt, which allows for a larger clamping force on the cam pulley. This added clamping force will ensure that the joint does not slip, shearing the keyway on the pulley. Using this bolt along with our exclusive ARP crank bolt will offer a much stronger timing setup than OEM. Features: Increases clamping force on cam pulley by 10% Reusable Made in U.S.A to tight tolerances Extremely consistent clamping load Threads rolled after heat treating Fits all 1.8T engines This is an Integrated Engineering exclusive part, made by ARP!
Integrated Engineering / EKagrip Cam Gear Friction Disc
Originally designed for about 100 horsepower, the factory cam gear to cam interface on the VW/Audi engines struggle when subjected to serious power. Larger camshafts and stiffer valve springs will add more stress on this area. Even with an ARP cam gear bolt, this interface can become taxed and allow the cam gear to slip around under high torque, and come loose. This leads to wear between the surfaces, and shortly thereafter complete failure of the bolts and joint. This ruins the cam gear and camshaft, and can even damage the surrounding components. In order to fight this we had EKagrip make some of their patented nickel and diamond coated friction shims. These shims increase the friction between the two components by up to 3 times what is seen with regular aluminum on steel contact. This greatly increases the load which can be carried. The shims are .008" thick, and do not cause any alignment problems with the cam/cam gear. An absolute must for any engine making 450+ ft-lb with increased stress on this interface from larger camshafts and stiffer valve springs Increases friction by up to 300% Fits 8V/16V/20V VW/Audi cam gears A must for high HP engines
