    affects of degreeing a cam

    did a little dyno testing with my cam today. originally put it in straight up. cam peaked a little soon. so, i retarded the cam 5* to make it 0*. (cam has 5* advance ground into it).

    not a good thing to do. this just goes to show that you need to make sure it's installed correctly, or you can lose alot.

    blue = straight up
    red = retarded
