Thread: Timing advance

    Timing advance

    I've been thinking about the timing advance for awhile now and it just seems risky to me...about how hard is it to do and how long does it take? and I still have about 2 years left on my warranty would it be something noticeable for a dealer to realize and void my warranty?

    It takes 30 mins tops. I add 8oz of VP race fuel in each tank for a little more octane because we only have 91 oct around here. When you advance your timing you want good fuel so your engine doesn't ping. Replace timing wheel back to stock for warranty.

    Just stay 6 degree's advance and you will be OK

    I really want to do it haha but it seems that you could mess up really easy and cause alot of damage in your engine but +1 mph is really tempting, how about acceleration does it help much there?

    follow the Directions, measure twice. Cut once. 6* is safer than 10*.

    What about the 260's?
    Do we advance the timing or not?
    Is there a verdict?
