Some say no, some say yes. I suggest talking to GSC and find out what they recommend.

You don't gain power by just installing cam gears. They are only useful for moving the powerband around. They're not needed at all unless you have a specific goal for your powerband and know where to set the cam gears in order to reach that goal. I do not recommend them for you.

I just found out that GSC says you can try to play around with them, but you should be fine to just drop them in.

On a stock turbo the general consensus of the local evos around here is for you to retard them 2 degrees for street friendly power. To make the most of them though you will need to spend some considerable time on a dyno tweaking until you find the power band you want. You may make more power up top but will generally lose some down low and vice versa.

Unless your aspiring for a bigger than stock (gt30+) turbo and revving above stock rpms, I wouldn't mess with them as there are much easier ways to make power.

Any adjustable cam gear is going to have the same timing marks on it
