5.9 magnum fuel sync??
hi guys,ive just completed some work on my magnum engine.it started with a worn lobe on my camshaft,so i ended up replacing the cam bearings,put a new crane 2020 camshaft with new lifters and a comp cams double roller timing chain..
everything actually went well on this swap,i marked the distributer when i pulled it out so i could get it back in exactly the same,the engine fired up and idled smooth and sounded very nice,but,i noticed if i give it a hard snap from idle only! it would give me a quick backfire out the throttle body,but,if i do it anywere else in the rpm range it would be fine..
so with all the talk about needing a 4000$ scan tool to set fuel sync.i lossend the distributer and started the engine,i gave it a quick throttle snap and got a short and quick pop,so i turned it just very slightly clockwise(maybe 1/8 to 1/4 inch in movement)which would be simular to retarding the timing and bingo!! no backfire!!!
so my question for you guys,would you call this good enough or should i still bring it to a dealer to get it set???i really dont want to do that though.lol..
i havent actually driven it down the road yet,i guess that will be the real test...
