Got them too, but haven't had them tuned in yet, I want to adjust them myself, but does anybody know how much tq. is recommended on the bolts(they have five)??? and also how do you adjust them when the bolts are loose
I know some one that's gonna dyno them in for me soon but i wanna mess around with them my self first. Anybody know how to do this!!!!

When they are loose take a torx bit that is in the center of the gear and turn it the belt will hold the outside of the gear and the center will move align it with the slashes on the gear to whatever adjustment you want.

i have the same cam geas as well and from what i have seen the exhaust cam almost always needs retarding to 2 degrees at least i would start there, but the only way to really tell is a dyno.
