I need help! I am going to the dyno in the morning and I have no idea how to tune the VVT.

Please advise....spoon feed me please! I can't find anything that makes sense and I have read all I can find about MS3 VVT.....

Come on Vlad! I was hoping you would share your pearls of wisdom! I read about the problems you were having.....I just have no idea how to even adjust the vvt cam!

Your question is just so vague I honestly don't know where to start. And I'm actually trying to think of a simple way to describe it. Are you asking about vvt theory, what makes the most power, which regions to advance the intake cam, etc etc etc........???

I mean you just advance til you stop making power, or stop leaning out from the adjustments. Dont do too early in the rev range like me or you'll experience the same crap (from what I gather). Start at like 2500-3000 and run like 30* or something til 5k.

Honestly I'd start with one of the MANY vvt map pics posted here and just adjust in small increments from there

Also if you search around you'll see y8s has done quite a bit of testing with vvt + ms3

Actually I want all of that....but my question was simply how to make adjustments. I am hoping the Tuner knows the theory and can help me with that side of things. However, I am kind of thinking I will need the knowledge of working with TS and navigating the MS3/TS setup.

I have a little experience with the VVTuner from DIY, but I don't see where in TS to adjust the tables....

Got it!
Thanks!
I finally found the other VVT option that was the table.....I think with tat information I can at least get it working some.
Thank you!

vvtuner or ms3? big difference. in ms3 you simply go to the "advanced engine" tab and select vvt settings or vvt intake table depending on what you're doing
