If you are looking for max power, I would suggest running more timing since you are burning 95. 8 is safe but you will sacrifice HP. I believe you can use an old spark plug instead of a piston stop. Just remove ground strap and possibly electrode.

what would be best timing for me to set it at? yeah i want max power i can get but also don't want it to detonate and go boom on me, also do you know what max rpm these rev to? safely and reliably. iv been googling around and they say 5500-6000 rpm? need to know what to set my tacho at so i dont go over the top with the revs, i sort of have a heavy foot and use to an efi rev limiter lol

I would say 6000 is very safe. I would start the timing at 10 run it for a while if it is under 180 or so bump it up to 12. Don't forget about total timing. Timing after the advance kicks in. It also helps to have a thermostat with a bypass in it

i removed the thermostat the other day because it might of been faulty and causing airlocks and was making me paranoid i had a cracked head. am just leaving it without a thermostat because it will need all the cooling it can get,

10degrees before or after tdc ? and what do you mean by if its under 180? 180 what? sort of confused me lol

but thanks alot for ur help so far

Btdc or advanced. 180 degrees. Of might be risky running with no thermostat on the street. Try a restrictor. It looks like a big washer. If it is running cooler with out a thermostat you can advance it even more. Reason a thermostat I'd used is because it takes a certain amount of time for coolant to remove heat from engine and certain amount of time to dicipate in the radiator.

I just took the thermostat out now because haven't got my temp gauge or electric fans yet, once i get my temp gauge in and electric fans and depends what temp it reads later on i might buy a new thermostat but for now id rather be safe without one then put one in and overheat it because it has no radiator fans or temp gauge. not that i run it for long but still. and ohk thanks, when i borrow a timing light again i'll check out the timing and redo everything
