VVT solenoid blockoff plate. An easy option but not the best for performance though. Aaron’s tunes can have basic control of VVT on RN-swapped M4.4 cars and it makes a noticeable improvement in spool time. Go check out his latest Instagram post showing the difference in spool times on @B_Dub‘s wagon.

I would go a step further and assert that earlier iterations of my RN swaps *never* ran properly with VVT disabled/ blocked off. Part of this was surely inferior tuning by MTE, but if you have the option I would absolutely recommend tuning for the VVT, especially on later RN dual VVT heads. Oh, and make sure VAST tunes your car.

Vast is tuning my car lol. 
I'm currently chasing issues so he can keep tuning it. 

 

I didn't realize that was a block off plate but now that you say it, yeah it looks so familiar lol, I have like 3 in my garage just sitting, none of them are snaab ones though.

After seeing your numbers, is there any other choice for M4.4? Haha

I honestly chose this so I don't have to deal with the fuel lines. Interesting that we can finally now take advantage of VVT. Wondering if that's worth it for a 20T...

Running lean after upgrading to the large MAF. 
He thinks theres a leak or a voltage drop at the pump. 

I had it smoke tested and no leak, so im guessing voltage drop at pump, which after talking with a few locals sounds like I need to do a resister mod to the pump like they have with the same pump. 
Honestly I just haven't had much time to do much to the car.

Good stuff Andy, I was wondering when you'd get that BBK action.
