I've mounted new cams, and sandro chip now lately.

and I took a compression chech today: syl 1: 7,5 bar
syl 2: 8,75
syl 3: 7,75
syl 4: 9,25

standard is 14,5, and service limit is 11.
I guess I need to do a big job on the GTi soon 8)

That is pretty bad! You need a full engine rebuild I guess.

What cams have you installed? Are they Group A type?

I suspect the GTi people would know categorically, but it seem logical to me that if you have group A style cams your compression test results will be lower due to camshaft overlap... Standard service limit is based off standard cams with no overlap.

Try to find a mechanic with a leak-down tester, they are far more accurate than a compression test on an engine with overlap.

Brilliant job on the rust. I like the dedication you guys in Europe put into the preservation of your cars. We are spoiled and lazy in Australia because it's often too easy to get replacement parts than to try and be inventive. It gives me some good reference and inspiration to keep plugging away at fixing mine.
Thanks for sharing it.
:D
