He also believes it retards timing. I by no means think I'm on any level as Jake but I have to disagree with him when it comes to a LWF. Every race car I know of races with a LWF and they don't have a high rate of crank failures. They also have their cars dyno'd and show the same amount of HP as the street cars. Again Jake's the master and I'm just a monkey who takes them apart. You'll have to make your own decision based on what you believe.
