That is pretty crappy the least the company could have done is wrote up a note telling you that and put it with the cam

the timing was 1 or 2 teeth off and yes the power increase is incredible in low gear. the owner says he cant believe the bottom end power. the noise was coming from the valves hitting the piston. they were not hitting much and it did not bend them but put 2 small marks on the piston. the new instructions are on Hotcams site. the part on how to time it is on the new instructions.

Gosh I was going to install a Hotcam in my rubicon, but glad I went with a webcam instead after hearing about that. They were both really close in the specs, just a few degrese diference.

How do you like the Web ? I run Webs in my other toys and was leaning towards the Web over the HotCam for my Rubicon.
