Should I advance my cam further than straight-up?
I am finally getting back to a 1986 302 EFI rebuild. I'm installing a Melling MTF-1 mild upgrade. Not sure how this will work with the current EFI-ECC, but will cross that bridge when I get to it.
Right now, I'm wondering about installing the cam with additional advance. I'd have to buy another timing gear set that has advanced keyslots, because I don't trust myself enough just to move how the timing marks line up.
so.. Does any one have any experience with advancing cam timing with a similarly sized cam, or should I just install it straight up?
Its a 204 Int / 214 Exh @0.050, 112 Lobe Separation. I'm not sure how much advance is ground into this cam. I'm assuming 4 degrees. I didn't get this with a cam card (probably not smart).
Thanks for your thoughts and experiences!
