Of course comp cams is in the business to sell cams, not give advice on how to make an existing cam work, so i guess i shouldnt be surprised that they didnt suggest advancing the existing cam.

    btw, i know that a cam can be installed advanced or retarded by moving the timing gears, but how do you "alter" the centerline? This is how the cam is ground...

    on a related note i dont think any cam would make a used vortec 350 with tbi in a 4x4 3/4 to. Truck with 265 70r16 all terrain tires "boil the tires"...
    When you advance or retard the cam you change the intake amd exhaust centerline in relation to the crankshaft. The LSA or LCA is what is ground into the cam and cannot be changed.

    My cammed L31 BOILS the 255/70R15s in my heavy Express van despite having a 4L80E with a very tall first gear and 3.73s.

    This was the aftermath of a burnout on dry concrete.
