Post 355 update and timing question.

I got the engine back in my camaro ( third times a charm droped right in this time) Started the break in and it runs pretty good . I need to figure out how much timing I should run I have it at about 6 right now, dont know the total Im just going by the balancer reading. I have a comp cams extreme energy 268h cam and about 9.5 to 1 comp speed pro forged pistons(9.7:1 but with my heads 9.5). my heads are world products s/r torquers 2.02 1.6. hyd lifters and roller rockers. what timing range would you guys recomend? any other info needed? if so just ask thanks for your time.

Be sure to disconnect the vacuum hose to the distributor and plug it when setting the timing. Re-connect the hose AFTER the timing has been set.

Just move the Timeing ahead a few degrees at a time untill eng. kickes back while cranking. Or starts pinging. Then back up untill that stops. Good Luck
