6 degrees mech advance only? Or 20 mech giving you 34 total? Either way, clarify your cam break in exactly, as based on your earlier posts it still sounds to me like that might not have gone 100% right and I think u hurt the cam .....I did exactly this with a comp thmpr a couple years ago, turned out to be a positive as I went with a "real" cam afterwords....
