really adjustable cams gears shouldnt be messed with unless you are getting you car tuned for them, and for them at the setting that is best for your motor.
every motor is different and the only way to really know is to get it tuned and your tuner will adjust them properly.

i wouldnt just slap them on and start messing with the settings...
that will cause some damage.

if you just want to put them on, put them on the stock setting or whatever.

yea, i was chatting w/ craig (CM&P) earlier and we were discussing the timing and all...I was mainly looking for a good starting point, to keep the tuning to a min, so i can dump the money i'd save into midget hookers, and car parts....haha

are you getting him to install them?

put them at the stock setting.
and at least they will be installed already when you are finally ready to get your car tuned, and the tuner will adjust them properly.

Yea, he wants 200 bones to install them! Kinda pricey, but he has to do alot of work to install them. I had them on my accord too, and it took the shop a hot minute to install them, good thing i knew them!! Shout out to COLLETTI MOTORSPORTS in Dayton Ohio for that! So, 200 for that, or for just a couple bucks more, my vibrant exhaust...hmmmmm....haha

i would do an exhaust first.
the only thing those cam gears are going to do for you right now is look good.

i just ordered my vibrant flat black muffler today actually.

leave them alone, you cant change the exhaust cam gear without getting a check engine light anyway so why bother? You have to convert to an obd1 distributor in order to really make use of adjustable gears.
