I have been wondering what would happen If you set your timing Advanced or retarded on a 350 sbc. Would It have more low end, advanced ?. What does it primarily change ?. Can it increase your Compression ?. Can you even see a change in power ?. Thanks
i almost didn't respond to your post kid. but advancing the cam will increase low speed torque, retarding the cam will increase high speed HP and torque. if i set up an engine i always go with the advanced, eventually chain stretch will bring it back to close to "0". if you retard it you will just behind the "8 BALL". for a street motor, advavcing the cam is the way to go!!! now, if you are building an altered (see previosed post) then retarding the cam is the way to go...
