x's on the Dyno. I got 17 ftlbs more in the midrange.
Money well spent.

Correct , the best thing to do is get them close with the tools for TDC then use a compression gauge to dial them in closer till you can get to a dyno
Do a compression test , then move one gear 1 mark , if compression goes up go another mark till compression stops going up by moving the gear , if you go Adv. say and get no gain in compression then go the other way , when done with that gear go to the other and do the same thing , this will get you CLOSE but you need to adjust the gears on a dyno or you may leave some power behind

The discussion is a moot point, he probably read the degrees difference on the sprocket markings, irrelevant since the reason for the adjustable sprockets to begin with. You correct with them back to right, or what you want. There is no way to 'confirm' since every engine will be slightly different. The term '5 degrees' also useless unless knowing retard or advance and which one of two cams.
The TDC mark can be useless too since may not be true TDC which needs to be indicated out with a degree wheel. Simply bumping a stop point pin is close but all engines vary there too.

|ZXthrizzle05||how did you know you were 5 degrees off?|
