missing a conclusion i see now.
according to my tuners there is a reasonable differens in vlave timing between the 2 marks, but how that will effect they couldn't say.
they didn't recommend 4e marks on my 5e
i need to take a look on the position difference to give my final conclusion.
as my car has a standalone ECU, i think i can (if i switched) role out the ignition difference.
just tried out the car on 5E marks , it picks up faster , less turbo lag , a lot of mid range and some what diminished top end compared to when it was on 4E, i think i just have to test this on the dyno .
ps ive always ran 5e timing marks butas an adjustable cam gear is now available, can any light be shed on timing angle to go for?
my forged 5e is on 4e marks and has more top power ,, on the 5e marks i get more torque and lose top end
this was only tested on a mines p&p and tdo5
dont know wit a stand alone ecu might be totally different ?????????????????
I spent lots of hours in the garage trying to get a good overlap with 5efhe cams and and adjustable timing pulley.
May as well have put the timing belt on with my eyes closed for all the good it would have done lol.
haha, Was that your final setup for the beast??
lol, was it worth all the effort? any figuers to back it up? as ive only got stock fte cams itll be diffrent but what degree did you settle on ?
Was that a back to back figuer comparison? im thining as my car is going to be dedicated track use that ill benefit from the torque rather than top end, unless i get adjustable pulley and meet half way!
also was there any difference in spool as i could do with extra spool with my new setup
Stock cam timing, couldnt get the pulley adjusted far enough to get both the cams where I wanted them, even with the intake or exhaust 1 tooth out on the internal cam gear.
Not being a true twin cam is what lets it down
Would be great if someone made an adjustable mesh gear. Would be the best way to do it I think.
