Texas Speed VVT-3 idle video's

I have had a lot of requests for idle video's so here you go guys,let me know what you think.This is done with my Black Berry not the best quality. Give me a few weeks once I get some solid 1/4 mile data I will do a complete write up on this setup.

When you say surging w/ 3200 may both people are you talking about the shake at idle or bucking? I always assumed it was a bucking or surging when driving low-end... I am unfamiliar with a cam-swaps and trying to educate myself it it is something I really want.

The surging is only at a stop in drive and is what I would expect from a cam this size. It is not bad at all in fact I love it.For someone that has never owned or driven a cammed car I don't want them to be caught off guard it is a fairly aggresive cam. There is no bucking driving at low rpm's. The Yank 3200 was a little of a compromise.The car is my wifes DD (100 percent city driving) and my track car so I wanted the tightest converter possible.If she did more freeway driving we would have went with the Yank 3600 and I'm sure it would eliminate most if not all of the surging.

Yea, the only thing stopping me from making the jump is the MPG hit. Like your wife... it is an occasional driver for me but it is ALL city driving with highway maybe once in a month or two... I am not really concerned with idle "shake" or too much surging... but I won't be tracking it so maybe a VVT2...

Sounds amazing! I will get the same setup some day. Mine is a weekend car and I occasionally drive it to work on a nice day. It wouldn't bother me that much if my mpg went down or if it is too loud and surging at stop lights. Man it sounds awesome!

We just did a 6 day trip to Vegas and averaged 20.9 mpg including 5 days driving around Vegas and I am on the throttle hard all the time.I would think the MPG between the VVT2 and VVT3 would not be that much of a difference unless you don't have to run a converter with the VVT2. I don't want to scare anyone away from the VVT-3 cam I personally think it is a great street cam. Drivability is so subjective from person to person.

With the 1/4 mile et you are running now you should have a nasty little street car.

That is true... and I probably will go the route of a converter to help with low end. I do want to keep low end as smooth as possible given the circumstances, I will have to contact TSP by phone when the time finally comes...

I told Jason at TSP how the car was going to be used and he put this package together for me.

What kind of change do you notice powerwise? It sounds awesome similar to some of the older cars I dreamed of owning. Also what type of cost investment is this upgrade?

There is a huge difference in the way it feels powerwise.I gained 75rwhp with the H/C thru the converter . The whole package is very impressive to me.I gained 121rwhp over stock with VVT-3 cam,CNC'ed heads,LT headers,CAI thru the Yank 3200 converter.The Heads,cam and converter package including the DOD delete kit and every gasket,bolt etc needed was $3100.I baught the headers used for $500 and the CAI used (new in the box) for $250.

Sounds awesome! I would have a Chevy dealer install mine also. I know a dealer in my area with a high performance department and they specialize in corvettes and camaros. They have top notch techs that really know their stuff. Again your camaro sounds amazing. I didn't think you can make an L99 sound that good with VVT. Thanks again for sharing.
