    I am not so sure that 0.100" of valve lift wrong would make so much difference from the hole shot , at higher RPMS yes but low down wheel spin grunt maybe not

    with the new set up you have lowered the compression and reduced the cam duration so there will be a difference but how much ?


    If it is that notable from the off it sounds more like the cam is out or timing out , whats the timing set at ? idle and total and have you checked it

    Ive had the timing set and reset more times than I remember since.
    As for the cam settings, I didnt fit it, someone else did and I don't know how to tell if it is out.
    (It sounds like a very expensive thing to check too)

    Shame because I've heard that you can advance or retard a cam to tune it for more torque or more horsepower, at this stage I would be pleased to tune it for torque and see if it makes a difference to the seat of your pants when driving...

    you can tune cams but I doubt yours has offset bushings to advance or retard it, yours will fit in one place and line up with the dots on the top and bottom sprockets and that's it.

    most decent aftermarket timing sets have at least 3 keyways to advance or retard the timing. you'd need to pull the waterpump, crank pulleys, damper, fuel pump if mechanical and timing cover. then you can check the cam timing.

    I would disagree with that Neil , most aftermarket timing sets aren't adjustable unless you start spending silly money on them, nearly everything under £100 has no adjustment in it. As you say though the only way to know for sure is to pull the timing cover.

    It's a chevy so the sump would have to come off to get the timing cover off - so quite a big job to check. I'd not bother and look at the simpler stuff first.
