There really isn't much to do for an AEG 8V. Older 8V's are awesome, but somehow VW messed this one up. There are cams, pulleys, and a turbo or SC kit. You can get power out of them, but financially it might be better to get a new VW with a VR in it already, preferably a MKIII Golf. Not trying to discourage you, just letting you know where I stand with my 2.0 and how much of a pain this is.
