The cam is 4 degrees advanced built in. I put it in straight up. The intake valve closes at 37 therefore bringing my dynamic up for better drivability and torque as a daily driver. Sorry I forgot to mention the use of vehicle too. So far it has ran quite well with 8-10 initial timing with a medium and a stiff spring in the distributor. I know 30-34 max total timing is what these heads like with higher compression. So far no pre-detonation.
Hope this helps you all to help me out. Thank you so far gentlemen!
