Also what transmission and clutch your using in the buggies
How much boost?

I believe you full well Chris. Just trying to wrap my head how it can be off so much. Don't get me wrong, whenever I put the belts on I never liked the way they tensioned at all. I would rotate a couple crank revolutions and then loosen tensioner and then retightened and recheck marks. Planned on getting a degree wheel here in the text couple weeks. You see any benefit from me having my cam gears adjustable like yours? Got a set I can throw on.

If I get time I will do what you are saying and will even take some pics/vids for people. Dropping off a block tomorrow with my pistons. Any recommendations for clearance for a 2618 piston in these engines?

Install pistons at the manufacturers specs. Adjustable cam gears are handy, the cams are too retarded stock.

For that application at that boost I would use CDI ignition. The IGN-1A are excellent coils, but to my mind the CDI is better.

There is a very simple answer. Most camshaft manufacturers do not understand how the system operates.Andrews Products understands the system. Talk to them.
