yeah. not a lot, but a couple hp. its more about shifting the power higher or lower.

From expierence with dohc motors it is beter to go positive on intake and negative on exhaust or the other wat around cant remember its been a little while. On my buddys 91 prelude we were running intake at +3 and exhaust at -3 and gained like three tenths on his 1\4 mile time.

negative on intake and positive on exhaust. you had the right idea, but backwards. and id say roughly 1-3* of adjustment on most cars. but if youre doing stuff like that, get it on a dyno.

I knew it was something like that it has been a while. Some dumb *** i know thought you could get more power out if you set them at positive and positve.

it just shifts the power range around if you do both. it could be a good thing for driving around town. advancing both of them will help low-end power, at the expense of top-end. but as many of us know, drag racing these cars requires a lot of top end. too much low-end, and you cant get it off the line without wheelspin. so retard them at the strip, and advance them at the auto-x track.
