    MS4 cam timing question !

    with the MS4 cam , do i need to run at a advanced timing ? i put everything together last night and when i started it , it sounded really rough like the timing was off , so i tore it back worn and it seems the two dots to make the timing at 0 are just about lined up perfect , but it would be better.
    My new thought is , should i keep it at 0 tdc or should i advance the timing for the bigger cam ?
    car is on a stock tune for now , as soon as i get it running im takeing it to newtech and getting a tune.
    any help would be appriciated. im currently starring at the car at a stand still so bonus points for quick replys ! :drivin

    Stock tune with that cam is the problem.

    Straight up unless the shop that spec'd it recommends otherwise.
