Don't know why you are so confused. You don;t have a big racey cam in your motor. (245@.050 or more with a tight LSA)
Confused probably isn't the right word.
My mind is made up as to what I will do with the ignition and that is to have a curve.
However, just to ease my own curiosity I am trying to get a better understanding of when locked timing can be effective. Some things in this thread made me believe there is more to it then JUST the camshaft. Maybe I misunderstood and the cam really is the only determining factor.
