Most cams come with the set marks at 4 degrees advance. So if you have advanced the cam 2 degrees then you have 6 degrees in cam timing. This is really about right. I often changed the the timing 2 or 3 degrees to suit track conditions. Advancing the cam gives a bit more low end. I tried as much as 9 degrees (from zero)n either direction to see what would happen. With a severely milled head. I got piston to valve contact at 9 degrees. I don't recommend going over 6 degrees advance, any more doesnt gain anything.

Now if you have degreed the cam and are working from correct zero then set your timing from that. Hope this helps, SLEEPY
