Exhaust CAM pulley

I have a few questions about the above Mod....

1. I have read that the exhaust cam should be retarded by 3-4 degrees for max performance is this true?

2. What actually happens to the engine when this is retarded?

3. Why does it give you more performance?

4. What is yours set too?

Thanks

I had my retarted to -4 degrees. It gave me about 5hp I believe if I remember correctly when I dyno tuned it.

^^^Check this thread^^^
Cam Gears Which One?
It could use a little help in the "info" department, but at least you can see what's available.

EDIT:
This thread has an "install" link that Hypnotic posted.
