OK initial has been set to 9* BTDC Then I hook up the ECM back up static idle is 22.5*BTDC. At 3500 RPM, when the mark it at it's peak, it's hittin 35* BTDC. Comp cams doesn't recommend going beyond 8* initial But the builder said 10* was fine and that total time should be 37* BTD. She idles higher (1250) at those settings. Where it's at now, it still idles at 1000 which is a touch high. I'm going to examine the exhaust manifold gaskets to see what's up. (Still getting code 13 after 60MPH is reached)
