    the faito low cam advanced has instruction that you need to advanced the timing mark to letter H
    instead of the I , if you do the advanced you need to pocket your piston else noise will occur
    which means the valve and piston is kissing each other.

    sir traxx if theres noise it means there's collision between valve and piston? I thought its normal for an aftermarket cams.

    I have also heard that the Tik Tik Tik sound may come from the stiffness of our
    Valve Springs.

    Check for BTD and tappet. Too tight tappet adjust might cause a collision between the piston and the valves.

    I believe this is a stage 1 low profile cam. It has a lower lift than a faito cams. Lower cams are more silent than a high lift cams. But this cam doesn't seem to have a good accelaration performance base on the cam angles.

    sir, valve clearance depends on the lift of your camshaft. You have re adjust over and over till you get the lowest possible output for better performance. try starting on 9-13, 10-15, 13-18. make sure your valves isn't hitting your piston or else it's another heck of a problem...

    again sir it depends on the type of camshaft, LHK cams is 2000, Kawahara 2500, Uma is 3000, faito is 3000, yypang is 7000 all probability. Its an absolute +10kph-30kph depends on your tune up sir. Higher lift cams has slower response depends on the angle...
