Smitty, I got them and you'll be amazed how much of a difference you can feel in the torque and the HP. Even my friend who is a mechanic was impressed. *Disclaimer* CXJ Performance is not responsible for the whiplash you will feel after getting down on the gas!!!

The whistle I get after installation is normal, right? I installed some for a friend, and his max doesn't sound like mine does when he accelerates. My max whistles.

The whistle is more profound with the 6th gen and not so much with 6.5 gen. I believe its from the transmission between the two.

By looking comparing it against specs oulined in FSM. Section EC page 35 Timing spec is 15 +- 5 degrees BTDC. Idle speed varies between transmission types.
Target idle:
4AT=700 +- 50 RPM
5At= 675 +- 50 RPM
6MT= 625 +-50 RPM

Use a diagnostic scan tool to see RPM that ECM sees. Gauge cluster is not precise. You can aso use this method to see timing fiqures.
