The shop owner ended up retarding the cam timing and says that I now have the 1.5 and 2.0mm I need he said that the way webcams tells you to time the cams it will give you the most torque at higher RPMs. He reviewed their datasheets and said that by retarding the cam timing I will have more lower end torque but will not have as much torque up to 7500RPM which is not how I drive the car anyway. I usually am shifting at about 5500 - 6000 RPM.

He said that the reason things were tight is that the shop that worked on the heads took more than he would have liked off to clean up the surfaces.

He ended up adjusting all my valves for me just to be nice.

I hope it runs well when I get it all put together.
