    I was gonna keep my mouth closed, but I'm starting to get excited so I gotta share. Got my new Diablosport Trinity today from Moes. Thank you Matt. Your service is the best! So, I've been waiting for a Cam swap. I've been bugging the ears off of Justin at Arrington for a few weeks now. Needless to say, Arrington has agreed to take my truck in and put a Com cam VVT 266 in and spend the resources/time to get it tuned. 40 percent off labor and tuning of course for free(the truck is a test mule). It will be the first '13 Ram and if everything goes well, I hope you guys can take advantage of this new mod/tune. Goes in Dec 2 and will take them approx. 2 weeks to have it up in running with the Trinity.

    Hope this will help. I only know that the cam phaser limits the advance to 14* at the crank 7* the cam and they will put in PSI springs for the extra lift but not needed.

    I'm stoked to say the least. It will be a perfect Christmas gift to myself. Good call on the lsa. more torque at the lower part of the rpm range without sacrificing mid and top end. Cam phaser limiter with VVT tech is all new to me, but I'm hearing good things. I'm sure I will learn a lot through the process.

    Did you ever check out the High Horse Perf website. I posted a video before. They use the same setup that you are getting, comp cam and phaser. They did it on a challenger 5.7vvt and got 90+ HP. But it was a bit more aggressive cam (Comp Cam 274). But even if you get 70 HP it should be a lot of fun.

    Seriously? I don't know what's all entailed in vvt...but if 70 is true and no bottom end loss....IM IN!! Providing the tune is safe .
