Whoa that sounds oftely high. Mines set at about 13 degrees with 93 octane. If I were you either pick up a timing light from Harbor Freight, rent one from autozone, or take it to a reputable shop and have them check it. That's probably your best place to start at.

One a side note, sounds like a nice setup you got!

I am carbed so I don't have a Tfi or computer so it's a mechanical advanced

Right, but shouldn't it be the same as a TFI distro? As far as degrees are concerned?

There is no chip so It already advanced

I'm confused. Even without a chip, shouldn't the process for setting the timing be the same on a carbed as it is on an EFI?

Not the same but similar. EFI has a little chip in the plug to the distributor that you remove to set timing and with carb I believe u disconnect the vacuum advance line. Been awhile since I did a carb setup.

Oh of course, but a carbed distro shouldn't be set at 30+ degrees of timing. They should both be starting around 10. That's been my understanding

Yes for Stock cam, I have mine set at 12 but have to run premium fuel if I bump it down to 10 I can run regular. Have set it as high as 15 without any loss of performance. But I don't think my cam is stock either.

Sounds nice. I want a super or turbo setup. Don't even care if its new. Just want a power increase until I get my stroker going.

Thanks. I picked up a long block off a friend of a friend that had ported E7's and a mild cam in it. Droped on a GT40 intake, a bigger throttle body, and 24lbs injectors. I got a kit for under 2K brand new from American Muscle a few years ago. I'm only pushing about 4 psi, but I'm slightly pulling on my buddys 01' Z28 with an aftermarket CAI. Eventually the plan is to upgrade the pulley and get around 8 psi. What kind of stroker you going with? 408? Lol

No just a 347. The 408 kit wasn't on sale when I bought it. Although I might be tempted to sell it and buy one after its built.
