The car is tuned by the team down at DIYAutotune. They are the only guys who have worked on the progression of tunes on this car. They are great to deal with and great at what they do.

I'm really glad that's over. That was one of the more stressful days of my life

The cam's didn't do much. You all should probably not consider new cams......especially if you are planning on running SSM.

Did you play with the cam timing on the dyno? Are both cams adjustable?

We didn't. I provided the cam grinder volumes of data about the car and its use. When they supplied the cams they suggested positions for the intake and exhaust cams which I set up when I built the motor. When I saw the dyno graph the "bump" was exactly where I told them I wanted it. Odd....almost like they designed them that way And yes. They are both adjustable.

This cell phone vid really doesn't do justice to how loud that blower is at full song in a dyno cell.

Understandable, when you said it was a stressful day I thought there was more too it that involved a story.

But, Eric, what kind of mpg are you expecting with these custom cams? I really want to do that, but I don't want to ruin my great cruise mileage. Aren't you concerned at all with possible impacts to your fuel economy?

Sounds great!
