    1.8e Engine rebuild/timing question

    Hi, Ive Just Had My Engine Rebuilt. Including Headwork.
    All Valves Have Been Reground 3 Angle Head Re-faced And A Piper Fast Road Cam Fitted.
    My Question Is Will The Cam Knock The Timing Out. So Will I Have Trouble Getting It To Run???
    As The Car Runs Standard Management?
    Any Help Greatfully Received.
    Thanks Chris

    moved to NA engines

    If the cam is reground from an original one then it'll be fine. However if it's a new one ground from new blanks, that you'll have to set it up manaually as chances are that the OE timing marks will now be wrong
