    I recently replaced my head with the outlander xls version and I found out that the cam profiles are a bit different. In mivec, the valves seem to open about 4-8 degrees earlier. Would I advance ignition timing in this case?

    Greetings, I have a 2007 Eclipse Spyder 3.8. It ran fine a few days ago. Today it cranks but has no spark and no pulse to fuel injectors. There is supply voltage at the injectors and ignition coils. There is also a pulse from the crank sensor to the ECU. Any suggestions? Thank you.
