Does anyone make a SET OF TWO that works with VVT-i?
Not yet. The vvt-i cam gear is a whole special unit that has hydrualics and a couple wierd mechanisms in it. Not exactely easy to produce.

It states in the FSM, that if you remove the Cam gear from the vvt-i mechanism, to replace it with a new one. :eek: They don't even say it's fixable. I guess it has some sort of calibration to it.

Kane... Thanks for the reply....I kinda figures if was fairly complex... I thought after 4yrs of being around someone may have finally figured a workaround.

BTW.... much props to building your own car.

you don't need both

you already have an adjustable cam gear on the intake side, as factory equiptment, it just isn't adjustable by you. its far superior to your mechanical adjustable cam gear, as your cam gear will probably adjust + or - 10 to 15 degrees, the factory IS gear is + or - 30 degrees.

i would think you would be more interested in figuring a way to adjust the vvti cam gear, electronically, from the cockpit

I know that much mang.... I was thinkin of if some tuner may have prettied up an OEM Toyota intake cam gear to match their Exhaust Cam So it doesnt look as odd if you add "just" an HKS exhaust cam gear for example.

Kinda like if HKS would anodize an OEM VVT-i cam gear blue and purple?

Missed this reply.....The thread was started about having two cam gears and still having VVT-i....Now why would you post about the two you know of ??? Unless of course they have VVT-i(whcih they don't).....So the choices are either (a)You were bored and felt like posting.....(b) You wanted to get some attention to SRT and feel cool... or c) You know of two guys that have VVT-i and also have two different cam gears.......I'll venture out on a limb and go with B....

Lastly no need to eyeroll there cool guy.... :lol: :roll:

Rich to answer you....Nope nothing exists yet.....I don't think it'll happen for a while.......
