1985 Dodge Shelby Charger

I have a 1985 Dodge Shelby Charger with the turbo 2.2L engine. I had the timing belt replaced a while back and the car now seems to run hot and feels like the timing is too high,
but the ignition timing is fine. I read once that the timing belt must be installed differently than a conventional 2.2L engine. Does anyone know anything about this? Thanks.

I had a dealership put the timing belt 1 tooth off on my 1988 Omni. Power was down and they said, of course it has no power, it's a 4 cylinder! That cost $350. So my dear wife brought it to another dealer where they said the belt was off so they moved it. That cost $250, but it only was there about a 1/2 hour. Turns out they de-tensioned the belt (short cut) but never tensioned it because that would have taken more work. A week or so later the belt had shredded the timing belt cover from slapping around. So after spending $600 I had to fix it myself. Had to replace the belt, and cover.
I suppose in your case the valve timing might be off, and whomever did the job may have reset the distributor to get the ignition timing correct. Time to revisit what was done.
Good Luck! Jim
