GPI SS2 Installed updated with video

Just wanted to give a big thanks to Ryan at GPI for his help with my cam decision. Before cam my car with LG headers, intake, and tune did 365. Last week i installed the SS2 from GPI myself and re dynoed today to data log for the remote tune. Car finished at 448hp. Big jump. Printer didnt work at shop so didnt get a printout and i dont remember the tq number. Its 100 here in Dallas so im happy for sure. Car drives awesome, sounds even better.

83 rwhp with a cam swap is nice for such a mild cam!

What were your before and after TQ #'s? Do you have a dyno graph you can post up?

The cam goes in the same way the old one comes out. The cam has a dowel pin on it where the phaser lines up. After that you align then marks on the phaser with the crank sprocket. The phaser is what controls the timing being advanced or retarded. You will also install a block in the cam phaser to control movement.

chevy, thank you for the response on cam timing. I 'm pretty mechanicley inclined so how hard would cam install by myself and a buddy. Ryan at GPI is awesome, can't say enough about their service, now just waiting for VA to get off their behinds and pay up!
