total timing

Using all MSD product, 6AL, 8580 dist., 8987 retard/start box, Blue HVC coil. I have the distributor locked at 34*......do you think that is a good timing mark? Also would gapping my plugs (autolites AR32) to .50 be okay for what I have?

Before I had it lock, it use to be 12-15 with a total of 36*

I know a dyno would know best but have never made it there yet!

93' LX hatch, 460 with mods and factory heads, TH400 trans, 9" w/ 3.89 spool. Best (so far!) of 10.04 @ 133 mph w/ 1.36 60'
Wanna see a low budget BBF run: (I know..the date trips me out!)

More of a mod list would be nice...

My466 on the dyno liked 35 the most. It was also cutting out at 7200 of which we are attributing to the plug gaps being too much at .045, I've since backed them down to .035.

im not going to say to run what i am because you hav a longer stroke than i do. because of this you dont need the timing i do because you spend more time at or near TDC than i do.

As I was saying before locking I was at a total of 36*, think I should be lower than 34*?

Cool. haven't been back to the track since the change but we'll see how it does when I do get there.
