I just installed the HKS cam gear on the exhaust side...question is what is the setting everyone is referring to? When they say -4 degrees, does that mean -4 degrees in respect to the crank or the actual cam? Thanks to anyone that might know the answer to this question.

Thanks everyone....one more question. Has anyone ever done a before and after dyno on the cam gear? Trying to find out about how much hp I should expect to gain. Thanks

you need to loosen one bolt all the way out and the other almost all the way. That should give you enough slack to take the belt off. When you replaced the cam gear and tried to put the belt back on, you need to grab all the slack on both side from the bottom. You can turn the one cam gear with the belt on to take all the slack out of one side. If you have any question you can email me at [email protected]

Tony, yes it should be 3 marks on the cam gear, which is actually 6 crank degrees. That guy (who doesn't know shit) at MCRacing will tell you it should be about 1.5 degrees on the cam gear. I dynoed it once at -3 and then adjusted it to -1.5 (based on what he thought) and put down about 3 rwhp less than before, but you'd have to dyno it about 3 times with each setting, letting it cool down in between each run to get true results.
