that's what I am looking for, your car is pretty awesome. I like being able to use stock converter. I am waiting to hear back from Ryan. What do you think you saved installing yourself? Congrats on sweet ride!!!!!!!

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!
