No doubt, but I'm assuming he has plenty experience driving to get those times as well

Ryan, I can say I've been on the VVT bandwagon every since I first saw your car running 11.30's with a good mph! I said right then that there is something to these VVT cams!

Congrats on the 10second pass.

I'm a big fan of the VVT cams. My custom spec'ed DOD cam was ground on a VVT cam core. Even with exceptionally low lift of .499 and a 115+4 LSA my G8 GT makes close to 450rwhp. Not bad for a car with a baseline of 290rwhp bone stock.

You did it the right way! Cam, Converter, and bolt-ons in a L99. If I had gone with the L99 instead of the LS3 back when I purchased I probably would still have my car with a very similar build. Congrats
