the mid to late 70's smog motors have their cam timing set goofy at the gears. Something like -4* to make for better emissions, but it kills power and mileage. You get a set of "straight up" timing gears and everything gets better. By '95 they probably weren't using the goofy gears as the computer controls had taken over.
