Hi, yes I know the 60-1. What I am asking is the size of the turbine (exhaust) wheel.

If you are running a Shag turbo you might be better off asking him which cam he would recommend.....
The cam did come from Shag. I'm mostly soliciting information from real world experience from folks who may have ran the EXR304 and/or the PTR1 from RLR in a similar combo. My last turbo motor had an FK8 which was fantastic. I'm building up my chassis to handle MUCH more power at this time. Won't be complete until mid to late next year projected.

Cam opinions are like ***holes......everyone has one. :wink: :wink:
It's interesting how many people on that other VW site can't make up their mind and end up buying 2-5 different cams before the build is even done and then leaving four of them on the shelf unused.
Smokey Unick said a specific cam is only perfect for a 300 rpm window....what 300 rpm window do you want it to be....was always the question.
I recommend getting his 3 book series and reading them.....especially the racing book.
That man packed 40 hours into a 24 hour day...........

My cam is boring...it's just a W-100.....

Yeah, I’ve read through most of it. I’m going to run the SLR cam. Motor will be finished long before the chassis. So I’ll report the output after tuning it on paradise’s chassis dyno.
