Advancing the cam increases low-end torque while compromosing high end power. Retardng the cam does the opposite.

To the best of my knowledge, advancing the cam timing 4 degrees will lower when the torque curve begins by about 200 RPM. This will yield more bottom end.

Conversely, retarding the cam timing 4 degrees will raise when the torque curve begins by about 200 RPM. This will yield more top end.

Here's a link for you.

Timing Chain Install

As you can see, setting the crank sprocket on the square RETARDS the timing. This will give you LESS bottom end and more top end. NOT what you want.
