i was thinking about this and wondering. my friend on his civic has adjustable cams..he got it like that and i never knew much about it.

haha i should correct, adjustable CAM....only one.

he has a msd system in there as well...but it is advanced.

now by my understanding the point of the timming belt is to keep everything nsync hehehe....

yet when you adjust the cams timming, to a bit more, wont the affect be reverse? like say on a intake stroke...air comes in yes..but the air and fuel come in early due to the cams being advanced...then on the exaust stroke the wasted crap is just wasted...

cuase my friends blowing black smoke at the higher rpms...

just a thought...whats ur opinion on those?

adjustable cam GEAR ;)
:stupid

you can effectively adjust your cam timing by moving some stuff around, but the camgear makes it so much more easier and you can finely tune the timing. this really should only be done while on the dyno as you can totally fuck up your timing. and it's not too big of an advantage unless you have changed your camshaft profiles.
