    We've had a few people asking about the ghost cam lately on different platforms, so I figured I would share a video for what we have done by utilizing the factory VCT to achieve the "correct" lope idle. Some other tuners have done this through excessive fueling and flooding the system, but we've been able to use minimal fueling and proper VCT to create the valve overlap needed to create the "chop" sound.

    Video car is a 2012 Taurus SHO with cat delete and full exhaust.

    It's not for everyone, but feel free to drop your thoughts and comments below, and also follow our YouTube page for more videos and racing videos from our customers!

    I think I saw this on Facebook and thought that sounds like a wild cam... now I understand why.

    Hi Lee, you guys loaded this up on one of my tunes and I liked the sound, but it makes my car shudder violently. It’s obnoxious... Is the shudder a normal by product of using this or could something be wrong?

    oh, and before someone says it, I know a cammed car shakes... I had a 383 Stroker Camaro build back in the day...

    should not have a shudder at all, should drive completely stock. I'd double check engine and transmission mounts to see if the engine is getting excessive movement.

    Check codes first, always. New plugs with tune?

    Gotta wonder what that does to emissions, and the cats if so equipped ;)

    We have a softer lope that is cat friendly. And I'm sure it hurts the ozone less than a cow fart :cool:

    I think this sounds pretty dope. How does this effect the overall performance compared to a tune without the ghost cam?

    This is just a modification to the idle characteristics through variable cam timing. As soon as you touch the gas pedal it reverts back to our performance tune.
