"Understeer" is when you hit the fence with the front of the car. "Oversteer" is when you hit the fence with the rear of the car. "Horsepower" is how fast you hit the fence. "Torque" is how far you take the fence with you.
That's the 2.0 (FS) motor cam positions.
Thanks for the EXCELLENT pic!
Ladies and Gentlemen,
My virtual hat is off to you. We positioned the alignment marks a bit BELOW "horizontal" because otherwise, the lines would be well ABOVE horizontal... this is a factor, it seems is caused by the slack/distance between the cams and the "newness" of the belt.
We chose to go "below" horizontal because as the belt wears/stretches, the marks will tend to align more closely.
The car was assembled and I can attest, it has NEVER run this well in the 40k miles we've owned it.
Thanks to ALL!
I'm glad everything worked out for you. And yes, you want to position the marks slightly low when you install the belt - when you hook up the tensioner, the tension will cause those marks to be pulled level.
getting the same thing done to my car right now as we speak, sensor and timing belt replaced plus some coil packs. All start off with some misfire events while driving. So far 2000 bucks will be spent to trouble shoot the random misfires.
Timing belt was due anyways so might as well get that done now, especially when the zoom zoom has 96000 miles on it right now.

either i'm missing something or your getting really screwed....the timing belt/water pump at the most should be 600-700...tune up, plugs wires, coil packs, what another 100? throw in anew egr...even if it was 1000...what in the world could he be doing to be at 2k, and your not done??:confused:
