From the factory, the timing read anywhere from 6* (too little) to 10* (ok, but it could still use more). I find that they tend to run best between 12*-14*, depending on what grade of gas you use. BTW............
Welcome to Hotrodders!
That much timing initial? Really? Most unmodified motors find their sweet-spot around 8 degrees initial, I find it hard to believe a stock motor running a roller cam and hardly any compression or duration would want 14 degrees! What about the total timing?
Your timing SHOULD be retarded, but only about 2 degrees per hundred horse, so it should be close (As that motor wouldn't handle much more than a 100 shot if that).
If you're having a problem with the performance, a former nitrous motor's smallest problem may be its initial timing....
