Car had r45ts, so plugs are virtually the same. New info: I checked the spec sheet from my engine rebuild: they replaced my stock cam with a "mild" cam with the following specs: 214-224 443-465. Is this appropriate for my set up? (1980 Corvette L-82 SB350. Q-Jet, auto tranny, stock heads,new valves 1.94 intake, 1.50 exhaust, 3.07 rear.)
Again, I'm having trouble with detonation and have to turn the timing way back (from 12* to around 6*) to minimize it. Could the problem be this cam set-up? Thanks! JG700
