Cam Gears and dyno pulls

Has anyone put cam gears on their car? If so what ones did you get? I'm about to get cam gears and im going to do the svt header swap with a ORP. Also at school im going to be able to do a before and after dyno runs and i'll post it. Im going completely stock to header swap and cam gears tuned for best usable power. I'll post all my runs for you guys in the next few weeks

no you will only gain power by tuning them. u cannot tune cams w/ stock cam gears, you need aftermarket ones

i think they are a must for anyone who is installing aftermarket cams. For stockers they are still helpful but to a lesser degree

Stock SVT cams are pretty aggressive, and shouldn't be touched.
