Advance or Retard engine...
Is there any performance gain to be had by advancing/retarding the cam pullies on a Boxer 1.6? I know older cars gained in higher/lower rev's depending on how the timing was adjusted using the distributer cap...
I'm just thinking about this, because yesterday I noticed a ticking sound from the first cylinder which turned out to be a loose spark-plug! I took the opportunity to clean the plugs and check the cab belt. Not surprisingly, this improved starting and idle immensely!
