    Steeda staes on there spec sheet that a T/A may cause " bucking " in 1999 and newer cars. I called them and they said it feels like a misfire. Has anyone experienced this?

    I would not get a timing adjuster if I were you , you will probably be more pleased with other mods or using a programmer of some kind or computer reflash or chip to change your timing .

    I havent, but I have heard of it happening. If you want to play it safe just get a chip or programmer like 2002BLGT said, thats what I did. But if you install the T/A the rigth way, dont advance your timing toooooo much, and run 93 octane then you should be ok.

    I've been using the steeda timing adjuster only only experienced bucking 2 times. Just put them on and don't worry about it.
