haha tom im gonna be waiting a loooooooong time for a full cam set. id rather get the gears, tune and leave it at that for awhile. if dyno time is only ~150 bucks i dont mind paying that again way later down the road. cams will likely happen next year when im out of school.

What I am saying is , you wont gain anything just adding adj cam gears now , why waste the money on the dyno time now , save it for later

You could, and you could also not gain any if your cams were already set good. He's just saying save your money and time and do it once.

The tune and SVT header would be the next mods If I was modding it , these will prove to be the biggest gains in everything else you do

Get a stock SVT cat, then you'll be emission compliant and with OEM pieces.
