Looks about right. Timing mark on the cam gear should be approx 3mm above the head at TDC.

What cam are you running to require the Vernier Gear?

pinging is more to do with ignition timing, fuel quality vs compression, not cam timing.

whats the ignition timing at?

im guessing its a au engine ??
the knock sensor should remove timing if it detects pinging, maybe its faulty?
but unless your running low octane fuel or a bad batch the engine shouldn't be relying on the knock sensor..

what fuel do you run and what heat range spark plugs are you using?

ive tried another ecu but it still pings but not as bad as my standard ecu which is my XR6 ecu I always run 98 in it as it is more noticeable with 91 in it. the spark plugs are EL XR6 ones I think there the ZGR6B-11. it is more noticeable on a warm day aswell
