Will taking the timing down from 40 degrees to 32-36 degrees help keep me cylinder temperatures down to cool the engine down for a cruise. I am having a hard time keeping my car cool. I will upgrade the radiator soon. I just need to do an event this weekend that requires a short cruise.


Thx.

less timing typically generates more heat.

Excessively less timing maybe, but not decreasing it to 32-36 degrees. The EGT's might go up, but that's from UNBURNT fuel in the primary pipe. You pull timing out, the annealing mark on the plug moves, because the cylinder is cooler, since it's not making as much power.

I use distilled water and Redline's water wetter only. Drops temps in my ride 20 degrees over a 50/50 antifreeze and water mix.

I agree, I am basing my response on what we see when we e-test cars up here. In dropping the timing (substantially) we see a much hotter cylinder temp and reduced emissions.
I would say 2 deg. has little or no effect also.
Sorry for the confusion!
