Adding an adjustable cam gear to the SVT requires dyno time and will only show a gain if the gear was installed wrong from changing the timing belt

cheers tom, there is a company called power engineering here in the uk, that are going to dial in my exhaust cam on a dyno, but would this interfere with your tune,?? once diald in, do you need to remap again for best gains???

im sure that your experience on the svt will get the best power output????

Many have added the adj cam gear to the Exh and there were no gains

The shipping was 50.00

May not need a retune but wouldnt hurt to send me a log just to make sure
