Im deleting mds when I swap my cam to 392 cam and I have 2014 auto r/t when replacing camshaft bearings do I need to get vvt or non vvt bearings bevause I thought that mds / vvt where tied together so if I deleted mds with deletion solenoids didnt I delete vvt as well

The VVT and MDS are completely independant of each other.

VVT=Variable Valve Timing. It adjusts the timing of the camshaft based on RPM and Engine load.

it would be lifters that you'd change if going with a MDS delete.

also there's two different 392 cams one for M6 (no MDS) vs. the A5/A8 version which has MDS.

7379BC is the last digits for the M6 392 cam

I am pretty sure cam bearings should be the same from 2009 on up which are the eagle 5.7 engines. The pre-eagle (non-VVT) engines had smaller cam journals compared eagle (VVT)

Some background on what has changed from the non-VVT to VVT engines.
