I did a quick test with log and this is what I got.
Test was done with full throttle of course.
At 1800rpm w/o vcam 0.05kg boost.
With vcam 0.06.
2300rpm w/o vcam 0.11kg and 0.17kg with.
3500rpm w/o 0.26kg and 0.49kg with.
3900rpm w/o 0.46kg and 0.8kg with.

From 1780rpm to 3900 in forth gear without vcam is 19.3 seconds.
With vcam it's 9.8 seconds.

Almost 10 seconds difference from 1780-3900 in 4th. Are you sure? If so that is incredible!
The log says so and it did take ages before anything happened lol.
But this doesn't mean it would be THIS much of a difference to a regular cam because you can move them too to sacrifice a bit top end to gain low end.

This just shows how much cam timing can do and that with the vcam you get as much as you can both in the lows and highs so you don't have to choose which you want.

Nearly all modern cars have variable cam timing and its used with great effect.
I can see great gains for a 3.0.

So do you get any extra parts for your 2k?:confused:

For 6000usd I still think a 3ltr conversion is a much cheaper option, and will give similar result

Depends what you want i want to stay RB26 for this project, V-cam can be sold on and there are always allot of takers when its available rather than a order.

RE the more expensive set up - Not a clue my mate in JP has an HKS 3ltr set up with V-cam i will ask him what is the reason (if any)

I got mine through him at a decent price (IE no-one could get it cheaper but not much differeance )
