What is the most that anyone has advanced or retarded their cam gear setting. Right now I'm sitting at -8 exh and -7 intake. I'm making pretty good power and the car is running good. I just want to make sure I'm okay with that setting.

there are plenty of posts on the jet about how almost every single engine has different "likes" and "dislikes" to the tuning of the cams. some gears are tuned at 0, -2, and some are at +2, 0. as for my crower stage II's, i had my cam gears set at -4, -2(intake, exhaust). the more you advance the gears, the more low end/acceleration, and the more retarded the gears(yes retarded) the more mid range/top end. now for everyday use i'd try and find the median/middle of these. just make sure that you don't advance it too much as the intake will sound like crap! please note that this is just from my experience, but i'm no kid trying to make it "cool", just run correct! good luck!
