I believe I have been graced with a case of the bad timing arm bushing and or mount. And it’s great because they are no longer made. Does ANYBODY have a tried and true workaround for this. This is my first dsm. I have always wanted a turbo eclipse but this one is giving me hell. It is walking off of the cam gears excessively. Like half the belt is off just in 6 rotations. Any help from the dsm gods would be appreciated. 1990!eclipse gst.

This isn’t a ford LOL. Grab some ngk BPR6ES. How much boost are you running? More boost, tighter the gap.
I know it I hate people who put autolites in anything ROFL. I read somewhere people recommend the 7s as well. I believe it touched 16-18 psi it starts breaking up as soon as boost really comes on and then I cannot throttle it hard if I ease into it it’s fine but I can floor it
