remember its cams in a ba, there are good gains to be made, but with the use to dvct its hard to get them to run right, locking the cams in place can help this but will need a retune either way.

most say its not worth the money as they are really expensive

atomic make vernier gears for them im pretty sure if you do head down that path

Hey mate it is alittle costly but once you have them you will not regret it.. The extra torque and power plus the sound!! Vernier gears not needed unless high hp turbo.. The vct helps with tuning the cams
