I am going to bet that your low compression engine (under 8 to 1) will like the total timing to be about 38* to 42* and all in by 2500 RPM. It is about time that you are going to get after the timing...

Your final drive ratio is probably 2.75 to l and I would not go any higher. I think for all around driving, a 3.25 to 1 would be about right. That car probably weighs around 5000 pounds. But, the...

If you have a "H" or "X" pipe in front of the mufflers and tail pipes behind them, they are mellow, not loud. I have them on 2 of my vehicles. As 1972Mach1 said, doing what we have suggested is a...
