It's just putting double butter cream icing on the VVT cake.

What setup was he/she running? Wasn't taking sides, just haven't heard of anyone doing it before.

It came in with a Kenne Bell, was at about 7 psi. The only problem, is that a supercharger pushes the peak hp rpm up, just like a bigger cam does, then you put VVT in there, and the peak hp rpm gets a little too high for where I think the stock rotating assembly should rev to if you are really trying to take advantage of the VVT pwer gains. Here is the dyno graph from that vehicle, you can see I let off at 7200 rpms and the power was still going up at a pretty good rate, just didn't want to push the stock lower end that hard.

I wonder what it would have topped out at?
Have they got any 1/4 times with it yet?

Me too! If it was my car, I would have tried it to see, but I am not going to chance that on a customer's vehicle. It's just a street car, and I don't think he plans on taking it to the track, at least not anytime soon.

Grocery getters' car just picked up 110 Rwhp and 90-100 rwtq with our centri vvt grind. Mildly aggressive, and it peaks at about 6700-6800. Maybe he'll post the puck I sent him of the graph. Or I can I guess! Look at this power curve. Stock heads, 10 psi at 6800 rpm, manifolds and no cats.

Their talking about the cam is making power into the rpm ranges that the stock bottom end can't handle.

I'm in Mickey mouse land in Orlando...thanks rhino! I'll tell you guys what...that whole crew at GPI is awesome. I had no hesitations leaving my car with thEm and leaving state. Ryan kept me in the loop and included in decisions the whole way. That's stock manifolds, no cats, no head porting, stock intake manifold. I dig it.

I'm sure is was a blast with a vortech, gears, and a converter....much less now you're gonna need tires and frequently

Congrats!!

Yeah..if I can hook it like I did on the last track outing...it should turn a real good number. It went 9.2x@111 (1k ft track) on a 1.57 60' on the stock cam. That's good enough for a 10.9x-11.0 range 1320. In MT I trust...hopefully still trust. Lol
