GPI VVT Cam

Well Ladies and Gentlemen, I will be officially purchasing my dod/afm delete kit, pus rods, springs/retainers, comp trunnion upgrade and hopefully a GPI custom grind cam or TSP vvt-3 cam on November 1st (torque converter gets installed sept 1st or so ).
My question is, does the GPI vvt cam require the use of a phase limiter like the TSP vvt cam does? Thanks in advance and i would love to hear from some of the members about their GPI and TSP vvt cams, such as what stage, supporting valve train, and other things you have done to enjoy your bumpstick more reliably.

Nicely done! What stall are you using and do you have a phase limiter on your cam phaser?

I ran the TSP vvt3, ran good and made good power. I am now running the GPI ss4, it runs real strong, huge difference. I also bumped the compression a bit and have a 3600 stall. Phaser limiter is used.

Doing the pulley I get, "the intake mod" I don't. Do you mean a ported intake manifold? I'm not spinning my motor past 6k so a dampner may come later if I want to up the rpms.
