New VVT Cam in Development!!!

Alright guys, everyone knows Im a big vvt fan. I have a VVT cam being ground as we speak that is going in my car for some testing. This cam is going to have a nasty idle, and should offer substantial power gains through the whole range, more so in the midrange. There will be other versions eventually, and we will need test vehicles for that too.

I obviously can't go into great detail on specs, but this cam should have awesome power and still have good drive-ability.

Once testing is done, we will stock this cam and start work on the smaller versions.

Actually we do need a test car for one of the smaller versions, and I also need a test car for a new prototype tq converter.

Rhino79 I sent you a PM.

I'm really hoping to see more options out there for VVT cams. I will be keeping an eye on this thread!

VVT FTW!

I need to read up on all of this. I have no idea what the difference is with the VVT cam or regular.

VVt comes in the auto cars. It is simply degreeing the cam on the fly. It allows for better tq an hp avg across the board.
