    I was thinking of replacing my stock cam gear/sprocket with a light weight one. What kind of power gains could I see? I'm not looking for anything spectacular, just something better for the moment being. Thanks for the help.

    you dont replace it for weight reasons you replace it because its adjustable
    on a stock cam dont expect to see more than 5-7hp
    on an aftermarket cam who the fuck knows

    have them tuned on a dyno for best results

    what would be the best way to adjust the sprocket for an every day driver? in other words how far should i advance the timing gear or should i just leave it at zero?

    if you leave it at zero you just spent $$$$$ to gain nothing
    if you try to set it yourself you might gain something you might lose something

    bring it to a dyno and have it set to where it will make the best power
