WE MAKE SERIOUS PONTIAC
AND WE KNOW MORE ABOUT BUILDING STOCK PONTIAC ENGINES THAN ANYONE.
Gear drives can be a nice addition to a high performance engine.
They ensure that the cam position you select will stay right where you put it.
No "stretch" will occur like you have a with a timing chain. ( no matter who manufacturered it.)
The drop on gear drives like the Pete Jackson are simple to install too.
If you need to move the cam you will need an offset woodruff key.
There is however, one thing I want newbies to understand. I'm talking to those guys that want that "noisy" or "blower sounding"
gear drives. In order to make noise, you must have friction. If you haven't learned this yet,
YOU WANT LESS FRICTION IN YOUR ENGINE!!!!!
if you want the most you can get from your engine, DON'T add friction.
Think how you can lessen friction.
If you want blower noise, buy a blower CD and turn it up....
