Headers GLOWING Red HOT !!

Hey I just installed Kent cams Exhaust gear and it's set at "0" deg. and the header is glowing RED HOT, I was wondering if this is normal or do I have to play with the gear to get this symptom to go away ? I have 1 step colder plugs / livewire coil and spark plugs are gapped at .055
Is red hot headers related to timing ?
Your input would be appreciated !

Yeah - I wanna see this too. If your header is glowing "red hot," something is seriously [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] with your exhaust.

That's why I'm NOT removing my heat shield...

The headers on my Bronco get good and cherry red after a hard run.
I've never looked that closely at my SVTF though.

Is this the first time he's ever noticed it...after the cam gear install?
