I hate to answer your question with a question, but how would you acurately tune each cylinder? I would think that there wouldn't be enough change to adjust it by feel. Without a dyno, or other means readily available it sounds like it wouldn't be worth it.

They have adjustable tabs so individual cyl. timing event's can occur.


Poor mans cap? Grind off the tab on the leading edge of the tower. If you mess it up, you get to start all over.

I've witnessed power levels of 15 horse at 7200 realized by tuning timing and atomization within individual cylinders.
