"Ghost cam" tune for a v6??

I don't know if anyone else has come across this yet, but this is a 2011 v8 Mustang that has VVT. I guess you can tune the VVT to sound like a pair of aftermarket cams (I imagine by adding overlap), and from what I've found and read on this particular setup, it goes back to the normal VVT setup after 1200 RPMs.



Last I heard the v6 wasn't really tunable yet, but that was quite some time ago... I'm wondering if this can be done with the v6 since it also has VVT? I'm thinking with the right exhaust you could probable get an otherwise stock v6 to sound like a v8 if this was possible. Thoughts?

Interesting. I guess I could ask Vince at Trifecta if he can do it. Probably can, but I still don't think it will sound like a V8. Have you heard cammed V6s? Sound bad ass, but the sound difference comes from the number of compression strokes per cycle. V6 will still sound like a V6, just a little more bad ass with the cammed tune

Good find man, keep 'em coming

That would be awesome! Talk about a headturner. Now, if that can be tuned, and the overlap in true cams = horsepower, would tuning be able to unlock some extra HP if it stayed active longer than just 1200?

Of course, the camed tune could be the reverse. Turn off the injectors every third cycle so it has a lope to the sound without the change in actual cam profile. Fire, Fire, miss, fire, fire, miss, fire, fire, repeat. (no idea if that would work. just trying to think of a way to get the sound.)

Wow. I'm interested.

Of course if it can hurt the engine I'm out, but I think this would be sweet. Yes I've heard vids of cammed V6s and they can sound very BA.

Go ahead and send him a link. I was just going to do it the next time I send him some logs (hopefully this weekend). Although cool, this really isn't my bag of tea. I'm going for the nearly complete sleeper. I want everyone to think all she has is SLP exhaust and shorties.

I'm convienced it could be tuned for more HP with some dial in on the lobes via VVT. Be better with a VVT cam though... Just gotta get someone interested in playin, with it a bit...

Don't the L99s have VVT also? If so, I wonder if they can do this, too.

Yep, I believe L99s are VVT. Pretty sure they would be able to.

Anyway, Vince replied me today, told me it's possible. And asked if I would like to try it out.

I'm willing to try it out, document it for you guys. If it works, I'll post a video and other jazz =) Hopefully it will work, and won't be too much problem =D

Sweet. It might be a neat tune to run at a car meet! I would ask him to have it turn off above idle if he can. If not then be sure to swap back to your good tune before you drive; don't think that can be good under load.

EDIT--Just don't spend 20 hrs on the video this time! Can't having you failing out of school just because you've got the Camaro Jones!

LOL.... I'm not in school, been working since 2008, and graduated with 4 years of University lol. Do I look that young? hahaha... I'm older than I look.

Anyway, I will keep the video short and sweet. Vince is writing the tune as we speak I believe.

He said, theres a seperate Cam phasing table for idle and off-idle. So it should be no problem. I was worried about the engine off idle as well.

Also, he's thinking of making a Chop switch, so if you press the cruise control button, or buttons like ur TC/SC, you can turn the Cam Tune off completely. But he's trying to get the base tune down first. We also need to see if it even sounds good enough lol.

Might end up sounding like crap, who knows. Also, I don't have headers, so it might not be as loud as the mustang video. But we should be able to hear a distinctive "cammed" sound =D

Sorry, thought you had written somewhere "on my way from school to work..." but guess I got that wrong. At my age guess everyone looks younger than they are (and bad memory to boot).

Might get him to send it to me if it sounds good just for fun.

Tune was on my list after exhaust and posibly headers. Might have to move this up to #2 after custom stripes.

Now if this could do the sound AND improve performance like a true cam, it would be mod #1!
