Cam gear and Diablo

Hi Tom,

I have a quick question for ya.

I have a cam gear waiting to be installed, but am wondering what I should do first. Would I be better off installing the gear now, get it dyno tuned, and then do the Diablo - or get the Diablo, then do the gear and get it dyno tuned? I'm also planning on adding a UDP... I'm pretty sure that wouldn't affect the Diablo.

I am wondering, but IMO I would think the cam gear first... waiting for your input.

You can do the gear before or after , wait a few days and see how the VCT eliminator is going to do . you may want to add it at the same time

Heh, I'll wait most definately. I'm waiting for my tax return to come. Right now I'm just trying to figure out what I'll need to do first.

I think I'll wait and see what the VCT eliminator (price?) does before getting the cam gear and UDP installed.

If everything goes right, Tom should know a little bit more about the VCT Eliminator next week. He'll be doing some testing on my car, if the turbo gasket gets there

I will be looking for the turbo gasket Monday

I had no idea that a T28 turbo to manifold gasket was so hard to find
