    is there anyway short of buying a vernier you can accuratly adjust the xev cam on a let by half a tooth?

    i can vouch for a full tooth back! Nyzrox's runs sweet as hell and as stated, 4k powerband is unreal (bearing in mind i drove it before the cam and after)

    Does it loose anything lower down though? The xe cam on the clet came in around 3.8k when it was back a full tooth

    Cant say i noticed any difference low down. Cam just has a bigger lift then z20let. I think zlet is 8.35mm, an x20xev is 1mm higher but i read its around 10.0mm so not sure but deffinatlt feel it at 4k boost is solid to redline also.

    If you use a vernier pully then you can adjust the timing without having to remove the timing belt!
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    the only way i can think of doing this without a vernier pulley is to take the cam pulley off and remove the pin that locates the pulley. NOT reccomended!
