    no my friends car wasn't running well, this guy did a si head swap on my friends 89 civic DX 4dr. and this guy didn't have a adjustable cam gear or a timing light. this guy said that he had to move the cam 1 tooth advance. is that possible?? I just think when he put the si cam in he accidently move the cam 1 tooth back. thats when the car had ony top end but very slow pick up. so when he advanced a tooth the car ran better. if he moved it one tooth how much degrees off was that?? it run ok but I was just curious! Sorry for all this miscommunication! Thanks anyways!

    insted of moving the cam gear, just advance the distributor. it is alot easier, and you can fine tune it until youre happy with the performance.

    Cam timing and ignition timing are two totally separate things...

    I believe that one tooth on the SOHC D series cam gear is NINE degrees. You don't want to advance/retard that much all at once. You might break something.
