True. While a Tom can't adjust the gears, you can. I am not sure of the data available to Tom and if it is enough to maximize your cam timing but he should from experience know the sweet spots. Not sure if you could use your but dyno to do the course adjustments. Then the data logs to fine tune adjust.
