Gwatney Performace LT Gen 5 Cam Packages are Officially Available!!

The Wait is Finally Over!

For those of you with a 2016+ Camaro SS, or a 2014+ Corvette – we have our Gen 5 LT Cam Packages in stock, and ready to ship!

Why GPI?

Gwatney Performance has a long history with VVT Camshafts, and we have built a large portion of our reputation around them.  As many of you know – we have pioneered the way, and pushed the limits of the Variable Valve technology for years with the L99 and LS Truck Platforms.

Our Gen 5 LT VVT Camshafts have been on the market (and dominating racetracks around the country) for years – but we’ve held back releasing our complete cam package until now…

Why the Wait?

We’ve done a huge number of cam installs on the Gen 5 LT’s, and unfortunately we’ve found the LT’s to be plagued with a cam control issue. 

Because there was no product on the market to solve the issue – it was up to us to diagnose it, create the solution, test it, and then release it to market.  We’ve been hard at work on this!

But first, the explanation…

…we’ve found the LT’s to be plagued with a cam control issue.

Explaination of the Cam Control Issue…

When retarding cam timing at the top of the RPM range, we noticed a frequent variation between our desired cam position and the actual.  Sometimes it would even retard cam timing when not commanded to at all.

Next, we found that this behavior was becoming more and more exaggerated as the oil temps reached higher levels.  This was leading to 8-10 degrees of cam timing retard, and power falling off at the top end after several pulls – which is obviously undesirable (you certainly don’t want each run of the night to be slower than the previous!).  

We had successfully found the problem, but this was only the start. 

It was time to build a new Cam Phaser Limiter Kit…

This was leading to 8-10 degrees of cam timing retard, and power falling off at the top end after several pulls – which is obviously undesirable (you certainly don’t want each run of the night to be slower than the previous!).

The Solution!

We are happy to announce the official release of our GPI Gen 5 LT Cam Phaser Limiter Kit that completely resolves the cam control issue.  As this completely solves the cam control issue – we are happy to bring our Complete Gen 5 LT Cam Packages to market!

(*These are included with all LT Cam Packages)

$79.00

In Conclusion.

In keeping with the very high standards GPI has become known for – we are proud to have created the most reliable, most consistent, and most powerful series of Gen 5 VVT Camshafts in a package that allows for straightforward install – and complete control over tuning!

DO I HAVE A CREDIT LIMIT WITH AFFIRM?


Unlike a credit card, Affirm is not a revolving line of credit. While customers can take out multiple Affirm loans at once, each Affirm loan application is evaluated separately as a closed-end transaction. An application from a returning customer may be denied, however, if that customer has failed to repay other Affirm loans on time or if the customer shows excessive borrowing behavior.

HOW DO I PAY MY BILLS?


You can pay your Affirm bills online at www.affirm.com/pay. They accept payment by debit card, bank transfer and check.

DOES AFFIRM PERFORM A CREDIT CHECK?


Yes, when you first create an Affirm account, Affirm perform a ‘soft’ credit check to help verify your identity and determine your eligibility for financing. This ‘soft’ credit check will not affect your credit score.

WHY WAS I PROMPTED TO PAY A DOWN PAYMENT WITH A DEBIT CARD?


Affirms tries hard to approve every purchase but sometimes can’t approve the full amount. When this happens, Affirm provides a debit card down payment option so that you may still complete your purchase right away.

WHY WAS I PROMPTED FOR A CHECKING ACCOUNT?


Affirm sometimes requires additional information to consider a credit application. Such information may include an active checking account, which helps Affirm verify your identity and your ability to repay the requested loan. If they prompt you for this information but you are unable to provide it, Affirm will be unable to approve your credit application.
