Total Timing????

What kind of total timing do other engines use???? I'm wondering about Big block and small block Chevy's, 440 Mopars along with 351 windsor based engines. I'm only interested in race only applications, cast iron and aluminum heads. I'm familiar with the Cleveland engine family along with 385's here. Any ideas???

I have run sb chevys, ford 302 & 351 aluminum headed motors, they all liked 36-38 degrees. Big blocks tend to like 2-4 degrees less

i run 36-37 degrees full advance on my big block. hotter days racing 36...I check the plugs after evey pass. the timing mark can be found on the plug strap. I like mine just past the bend of the strap.
