Yep, all is well now except I am going to play with the base timing a bit today. We set it at 10 degrees when first installed, but reset to 6 after digging into the books for the base timing for the 92 5.7 smog hog. Since there is no smog junk on the motor, 30 over on the bore, big valves and mild cam, I think we can handle a bit more timing advance. We will begin with 8 degrees and use the old stop watch for some 1/8 mile accelerations to see where the best setting is located.
