Advancing the Timing

I have heard there was a way to advance the timing on our engines by yourself since noone seems to make a timing adjuster for our cars. Has anyone had experience with doing this before?

Heres an article from over at v6power

If you advance your timing too could lead to detonation. Which is not what you want to do.

You don't want to mess with that man. Timing should only be messed with in the computer. If you can get a hold of a tuner that uses SCT software, he can get inside your computer and change the timing there. Also, even though they said it on V6Power, but they seemed confused, each tooth is 10* so if you did move it 1 tooth, that would be 10* which is WAY too much.

60' ~ 2.1, 1/8 ~ 9.61 @ 73.4mph

Actually, I was in on the early work with that, Electricat and I talked
alot about that on the phone, and it is an OK way to do it. You can't get
even close to advancing it one tooth, the limitations are much less than that.

It needs further testing, and I thnk it would be a good cheap product to
make (if feasible) for the guys wanting a bit more advance. Maybe an
adapter plate and a fine-tuning adjustment screw, for better infinite
timing adjustments. It would advance the whole curve, adding for example
2* at all RPM's.

Rob, I believe your EEC tuner can read spark timing, we could make one and
have you read it and test it. Nice new product for RDM, don't you think?
If it is fully worked out that is.
