Would a cam tune make my car faster? Or just make it sound bad a$$.
McQueen,

The cam tune just gives you the nasty lopey idle. We make all the adjustments in the variable valve timing tables, however it doesn't add or loose any performance!

This tune only lopes at idle, as soon as you touch the gas pedal the car will go back to its normal mapping.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions! Our Bama Performance tuning specialists are here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 9AM-5:30PM EST. You can hit them up directly at 888.226.9764 and they'll get you squared away!

Yeah it's only for sound and it does sound cool. Also it waste a lot of fuel not that I care just letting you know and when idling through first gear it real choppy like a real cam. It breaks the back tires loose when I'm idling through gravel.

I love the sound and it will definably be a must for me when i get my tune, i am going to use kooks or SW lt headers with o/r x pipe package and 2013 quad muffler.

With a stage 2 cam you would get 32 hp to the wheels.

Correct. Just a tune.

I have seen reference to cams for the Coyote. I just am not connecting how it benefits since the engine has variable cams on both intake & exhaust.

Isn't that the point of the TiVCT system? You get the more aggressive profile when needed, and the milder one when it's more appropriate? I'm still missing something here.

OK, going for lift I get. Timing with the variable control is obvious (got that one), and I thought the TiVCT also adjusted duration. In a Ford press release on it, they also stated it can control overlap.

In any case, the lift part of the equation makes sense.

Now the overlap I'm pretty sure is in reference to timing both intake cams to overlap each other, so that instead of having an even amount of time between cylinders firing, the time frame in which they fire overlaps.

In order to control duration, you would little have to slow the cam/motor/rpm while the valves were open, for each and every valve and speed up while they are closed, which is not really feasible or even possible because there is ALWAYS valves open, you cannot simultaneously speed up and slow down the same camshaft.
