On the 75 shot, a #6 should be fine. Anything over that and Id put the 7's in.

Ill be stepping up to a 100 shot with the cam, so ill go with the br7efs. Talked to my tuner about it and we decided to go this route. Now mind you guys my dyno will be a bit lower with the colder plugs and reduced timing but you will get the idea of where the cam is vs the mods. My last question is, will i run out of fuel in yhe rail? Will the pump manage to keep up?

Stock pump will handle it, for a while. Mine lived on the 150 shot for a little while.

excellent, btw i'm needing to hear an idle clip from anyone with a vvt-1 cam, i will make as many video's as i can of driving, idle, racing. because i've found almost nothing on the vvt-1 vs everything else. tons on the vvt-3 as far as idle clips and 1/4 mile stuff

Your going to need a stall converter with that cam, probably around a 2600.
with the stock one you'll most likely be using both feet when you brake.

I'm told that the good thing about the vvt1 is that you don't need a stall.

I'm sorry to go OT, but I don't even really like red...but my god your car looks good.

On topic, yes, you shouldn't need a converter with the vvt-1.

It's not a huge bumpstick, in for results though.

Here's the progress made tonight. Im not the one personally working on the install since this is the first time doing a bigger project. I am sitting back and just soaking in the information from very expirinced friends who have done this install or type of install in the past (g8) (ls3 camaro) (gto) ect...
