Question Can valve timing be changed, without new cam?

I can't afford a cam, but I thought if I yet could do something about the valve timing. I've heard that some sort of vedges can placed at the dividing head's wheels. I've also heard that timing some degrees earlier would have benefit at the torque at the low rpms. So am I completely on the wrong tracks? If not what do I need to do this? Or is there something else I could do?My car is -93 legacy 1.8.

Thank you beforehand

I always forgot something... I don't have my car's cam information card. Does anybody know where to get one (maybe from the internet) or am I so lucky that one of you guys has it on your computer?


It's not so hard being novice when getting help is this easy

There is some good information on cam timing here.

The other option would be the use of cam gears. Nobody has cam gears available yet, but unorthodox racing is scheduled to realease some for the EJ25 in Spring. I am not sure how compatible they would be with other EJ series motors.
