    I'm booked for a cam upgrade for my VF2 W375 auto in July and wanted to ask if anyone else has changed their bump stick and how have you found it?

    Which cam are you going to install?

    I had a VCM10 in the VE but I was thinking a VCM11 or VCM12 for the VF.

    Is yours an automatic? Are you staying with the stock stall?

    Yes mate it's an auto. 6L80e I believe and no stall but the tuner has done a lot of them and has one in his missus car.

    I like the vcm11 but the 12 I don't think will suit my purpose as well and I thought maybe the 227 inlet duration at 50 would push on the auto a bit

    I'm looking at doing the same around july, also an auto and leaving the stall stock but lowering diff to 3.70 (same as the manual). Tossing up between the VCM532 (215° 223° .583" .583" 112° LSA) or the Harrop H05 (216/224 .593" .592" 116 LSA).

    I wouldn't mind a recommendation, running the vcm 7 in ve ss, too big

    Cool! Will be interesting to see how it turns out when you select one. The 112 lsa should lump a lot more at idle I'd suspect the 116 lsa will be pretty stealth is it?

    Going from various recommendations, the 116 is a lot quieter, both the ones I mentioned were suggested because of the stock stall, and to prevent low speed surge with a more aggressive lobe. With lowering the diff I'm also thinking a bit meaner with the Harrop H02 (224'232 .609 . 610 114 LSA). And a trans tune with the remap, along with trans cooler.

    H02 with trans tune for sure. I'm getting mine done in a couple of weeks too but I've been told the trans cooler isn't effective so I'm fitting a Cadillac trans pan and deeper pickup and the trans tune. Also the under drive balancer was highly recommended by the shop doing the work and Walkinshaw up here when they quoted the cam upgrade. Apparently helps with auto's down low if your cam selection is aggressive for a stock stall.

    Trans cooler is effective. I have monitored temps. The temps lower considerably

    Definately go the trans cooler, and I've seen good reviews of the deep pan, just concerned with already suspect clearance issues after fitting the Pedders SportsRyder springs. I'll look further into the under drive balancer, anything to help the transmission low down.

    Does the cooler improve shift issues or is it more to prolong life span?

    The clearance with the caddy pan is really good it's not the really deep type intended for GM trucks it's not much deeper than the stock pan but it's got baffles around the pick up and the guru at sureshift automatics up here swears by them.

    Lowered oil temps so better for life. I bought a VE kit and modified it.

    My VF box is tuned. Made a huge difference to shift speeds and firmness
