Just a little update..... Those that I talk with on here already know my plan is to go VVT on my LS3. After talking to Rhino79 and asking stupid question after stupid question I feel like for what I am wanting out of my car this route suits me best. The quote I got from the guys at Gwatney was a really awesome quote. It was alot lower than I was expecting and not much more than doing a cam upgrade the right way even if I was staying with a plain ol LS3. I am still a few months out before we will start the process but I wanted to give everyone that follows a heads up and if anyone else would like to follow to see the progress once it starts this is where you will need to be.

I wanted to stop in and give everyone an update. We have decided not to try the VVT and Rhino is currently spec'ing out a custom grind cam for me. Should be ordering everything this week and now that work is beyond busy I'm hoping to try and take a few days off in Oct to go have everything installed. We will be adding cam and of course cam kit and an under drive pulley.

This damn oilfield I went from dead in the water to now being gone working for 3 weeks with no end in sight as to when ill go home for a few days. The Ol Lady might be a little pissed that I'm going to be spending my only days off up at GPI but all I can say is RACECAR!!!

Will post more once I get everything in and get up there.

This wait is killing me but I'm sure it will be worth it. Have you decided which route you are going or waiting to see how this turns out.

Leaving back out for work for a week or two in the morning. Hopefully this will help the next 30 days go by faster than it has been!!!!
Stay tuned for the GPI custom grind bump stick results!!!!

I pretty much decided when my 545 cam and PRC 255cc heads showed up on my doorstep lol. At this point I'm confident that I can make it to 500rwhp, and although it's just a dyno number, I am also confident that it will be a bad ass setup for the street and track. I've kept going back and forth between staying N/A and going FI, but right now it's too early to tell, so I'm going to focus on this setup. I still need head gaskets, and ARP head bolts, and then I will pretty much be all set, minus some oil, and an oil filter.

Man I forgot all about that and we were talking about it a week or so ago.

Thursday morning I'll be leaving out and making the 4.5 hour drive to GPI to have a custom grind LS3 cam installed that Rhino spec'd for me. Along with cam and supporting upgrades will be an Underdrive Pulley, 3.91 gears, JRE Posi Mod, shift light, and a seperate clutch reservoir.

I will update more on Thursday as I get the info from Rhino or he may post here on my behalf. Hope to have dyno numbers and sound clips up on Friday.
