Advance timing...

I always run 91 octane in my car and people are saying you don't want to bump the timing up to 14 unless you run 93. Anyone who's done this do you think it would be a bad idea to bump it up to 12 degrees? Cars mostly stock, performance wise just a cool air intake. Other than that just electric fans etc. any info appreciated, just lookin to get a little more out of what I got.

Just bump it up and see what happens. If it pings just lower it back. I run 91 and about 14 degrees no problem.

Why the carb conversion? Not a big fan of efi?

Looks good bud. And yeah I probably would have done the same. I got pretty lucky with mine. Motors motors all stock with a cool air intake. Just done things to make it more reliable. Hopefully gonna get it painted January and start on some motor work. Click image for larger version

You can advance the timing with 87 just fine.


Make sure your balancer is good and advance it some and if it pings just back it down some. Remember all cars are different as some can be advanced to 16 and some can't move past 10.
