Easy to Tune, Big Cams, More Power, Faster Slips...
You have the biggest f*ckin' hard-on for pre vvt blocks, don't you? The only reason there aren't too many big vvt builds yet is because there are only a few successful tuners. You're just pissed that your "hand built" motor isn't making any power. I'll tell you right now, its not the motor its the tuner.

The VVT LXs are spanking pre vvt LXs with the same bolt ons. There are pre vvt LXs that are struggling to break into the 13s with bolt ons yet mine ran 13.3 stock. So tell me how exactly is the vvt worse?

We'll be proving the potential of the vvt engines later this year with Gabe's truck. He'll be one of, if not the fastest, 4th gen on here... if he's not already.

Mike updated me a little while ago, I don't see why we couldn't make that guarantee.
