That depends.

But, ususally they point up.

If the cam is under the rocker, the point down. If it is on top of the valve or rocker, they point up at TDC.

If you run a large intercooler and can adjust timing down under big boost, 12-14 is no problem.

No, I think that they will not cover the AMG cars because of the C36. They wrote too many policies on these cars. In the day, the head gasket alone, part only, was over $600/////
