How low can I go before I start running into a problem ?I'm at 18* now and would like to pull a few more at launch and ramp back in.Am I safe at 14*-15*? Conventional head BBC.
A good friend of mine told me a story just like what you're talkin' about. He's pretty well known in the Pro Mod circles.....Gordy Foust, He said he was at Martin, Mi. several years ago and was asked by a street legal legend (won't call any names but his initials are BK) for some tuning advice. Seems he was knocking the electrodes off the plugs with detonation. They wound up at TDC total timing before he ever got down the track to qualify. Gordy said this was an extreme case but he factored in that this fellow had probably squeezed a few ring lands and oil was getting in the chambers.Jim Monson said:I ran mine at 9 deg total. I've talked to guys who claimed zero degrees advance.
