ok a while back i did the a6 cam swap and it ran perfect with the right timing but after 6 month i got a new b7 block and i put in it and now timing jacked. like im not sure of what DEGREES do i time it at with a timing light gun? so can you guys help me! now i looked into my chiltons honda book and the timing degrees said time it at 16-20* so im wondering do i use the same timing degreez with the a6 cam swap?:bigok:

a6 cam in a d15bx block you say? its a time proven combo that requires one more part.. y7/y8 cam gear.

to what the FSM says for the d15b7.. like i said already, ignore that it has a cam swap when setting up timing IF you have the y7/y8 cam gear. set it just like you would any bone stock b7.

Since no one else bothered to read your post........

Set the ignition timing to 16 BTDC but you can run as much as 20-20 BTDC without needing anything more than 87 octane gas.

i was implying to set both mechanical and ignition timing to factory spec i should have been more clear about it though
