I did, but don't the KL cams have a smaller base circle? This one's 36mm, same as a stock cam.

I was told it's an IPD turbo, btw.

I wouldn't feel bad about shoving 16 or 17psi through a skinny rod motor if it was running right. Probably still wouldn't beat a GTI though.

Could be a bad master. Could be a stuck caliper caused the fluid to boil without you noticing. Could probably be some other things I'm not thinking of. Try cleaning the connector on the wiper motor.
