lol looking at other posts looks like this aint the first time you two haven't agreed on total timing in bbc's.
i googled it and this seems to be a common debate.
i do agree though that i would like to run a little more advance at idle, i'm going to mess around with it a little more when i get back home , heading up north to go to work for a couple weeks.
i just reallly dont like the idea of messing around with the distributor, is there a kit to buy to shorten the curve or do i actually have to braze the slots in?
when i get home i plan to take it out in the woods for a little test drive, maybe i can get some more tuning done while im out there actually running it instead of these lousy driveway tests. lol
