I would recommend downloading Mozilla Firefox as your web browser as it does spell check for you. That may make your questions seem a bit more clear!

As for the VCT, leave it alone unless you are having problems with it, it it goes out then you can look at a VCT delete and cam gears. And if you just did a VCT delete and cam gears, without a tune and installed the gears incorrectly I would say you will hurt your performance and probably your motor too.

the only reason to do the vct delete is if yours is broken, its not meant to be a performance mod from my understanding.

I may be having some issues with my VCT. I turning my SVT into a track car, what benefits would a vct delete give me? And the other question that goes with that one, what do you lose by doing a VCT delete?

If you're building a track car, VCT delete allows you to tune for more upper RPM power. The downside is a less daily-driver-friendly power curve (more power up top, less down low). On a track car, you'll be in the upper RPMs most of the time anyway, so it's not a bad idea.

almost all automotive engines these days use some type of variable valve timing, whether its Ford's VCT, BMW's VANOS, Nissan's NVCS, Honda's VTEC, just to name a few. even old radial aircraft engines used this technology. its a great strategy to get the air in or exhaust out at the precise time of an engines any given RPM range. perfect for making an even power curve across the board. whether its cruising around town or racing down the track. i would keep the VCT, and let it do its job.

I agree... I would try to plan around the VCT as it gives you the better power curve. For simplicity's sake, it's easier to tune without it (so I hear), and on a track car, the engine's rarely going to be down below 4k rpm, if at all.
