Brian,

Is there a way to check if it is off by one tooth other than simply looking at the pulleys and how they allign up? Since I am going to get my car dyno'd with a datalogger soon how would something like this show up on the results? I don't think my car is off but I am curious nonetheless. Thanks.

Matt

I checked by looking at the cam gears and a tooth off is very visible.

It depends on what side it is off but in either way you'll get a feel that it is running crappy. A datalogger will tell you this as you'll experience more knock due to the changed timing in the valvetrain but nothing else. Of course the ignition timing will be retarded too.
