VCT eliminator non-sense

Ok guys heres the deal. Im REALLY REALLY needing my car up and running and to do this i need the VCT eliminator. But i dont think 1turbofocus is gonna have any of them anytime soon. (he hasnt started making any yet). Dont get me wrong here i have nothing against Tom at all and im getting on here to hate on him (seeing as i plan on getting a tune by him this month).

So i have come up with a solution. Not at all a good solution but i am in DESPERATE NEED here. So im going to have the VCT gear tig welded to the camshaft due to my SVT ATX swap. Unless i here from Tom before monday morning that he will have an eliminator at my doorstep in 2 weeks or less i am gonna have it tig welded. I REALLY dont wanna have this done but this is a last resort.

Has anyone at all ever done this???

bad idea, the cam gear will sit in too far and the belt will walk off. you think you have problems now, wait till that happens...

just get in line and wait or find someone selling it (no chance). its a custom part for a car that isnt really big in the aftermarket world. just because he made them or w/e at one point in time does not mean he has to continue to make em or make em when people ask. i have been looking for 2 months and i might just go with a zx3 zetec head.

i would say do what you have to do but isnt the cams cast iron and cam gear is steel. welding to diff types of metals usually dont turn out good. welding the cam to the gear (VCT) wont do anything anyways because the bolt stops it from spinning. theres is internal helical type gears that when its moved in and out by the oil pressure it advances or retards the cam/cam gear. im pretty shure you couldnt take the cam gear apart weld inside and put it back together as well.

couldnt you just leave the sensor unplugged and it should default to 0 or something? (it works like this on the vct exhaust cam for the zx2)

What maeks u say the gear will "sit in too far"

If the gear sits in too far why doesnt the belt come off of every SVT in the world?

The cams are the same length. I put a regular adjustable cam gear on my exhaust cam I don't see why putting one on the intake would be shifted. The belt is straight right? I think rudel has 2 adjustable cam gears on his Svt. But is running the vct delete.
