Kent Cams Question upgrade.

I am looking into buying a Kent Aluminum alloy adjustable cam gear and I need thoughts. Does it give the SVTF a boost in power or is it just for weight reduction?

Thank you for your time by reading this post!!

You cannot add adj cam gears with out eliminating the VCT

There is no power gain or less from going to adj cam gears on the SVT , I wouldnt do it , you have to pay for dyno time to adjust the gears , a tune to turn off the CEL , your looking at about 1000-1200 to do the adj cam gears correctly and in the end no HP/TQ gains

What if it is just for the exhaust side of the cam?

Wont help any , there will be little to no gain from adding an adj cam gear , tune will do MUCH more for safety and performance and cost less then 1 adj cam gear and dyno time to adjust it
