Are these worth looking into? It says dyno tested for at least 5 hP. Im sure you can find them cheaper too. Has anyone tried these yet?

These would be a good alternative to cams, since you could adjust the stock ones.

The cams automatically adjust on our cars because of VVT. this may remove the VVT on the car; if they're for racing applications. I am curious as to wehter VVT is retained when using these.

Plus, it's be a bitch tuning these, since the cam gears are under the valve cover, you'd have to remove the valve cover every time you wanted to change the settings, and with the cam's still in, I'd bet these are even more difficult to set.

Still a cool addition none the less.

I'd have to look into them more.

it might be good to have on the exhaust side only IF you're running aftermarket cams.

it would be a joke to put it on the Intake side cause you'd lose your VVT.

also it will be rather difficult part to use since they are located under the valve cover.

also I dont trust anythin gOBX so my opinion would be stay away.
