    Hi chaps, can anyone tell me what my torsion value should be on this engine as its reading 3.37 degrees at idle and up to temp.
    i have what feels like a slight misfire at idle and upto a about 2.5k rpm more so when cold.
    Thanks

    3.37 is a little high. Has cam belt been done?

    Hi Rick, yes cambelt kit and water pump fitted at the dealer 1000 miles ago. Just before I brought it. I have since tweaked cam timing and brought it down to 0.37 and is running much smoother now.
    Thanks for your interest.
