lluciano77 Your plugs look fine from that picture.

You need a magnifying glass to check the plugs for detonation. Look for aluminum balls.

Try having your advance come in sooner. Use the lightest springs.

Slant3 Thats exactly when mine begins to detonate.(wot at 3000 rpm)
check the plugs and they looked fine(only that they smell and have some fuel on them) .If I just steadly increase rpm it does'nt detonate. Only When I crush the pedal.
515 lift----246 at .050----108 lobe sep.---10:1 comp.

lluciano77 So is it safe to assume that it is not in the 2,500 RPM to 3,500 RPM range? That is where most detonation happens. Your cam should be able to bleed enough pressure to eliminate problems in this area.

On high compression engines, above 5,000 RPMs the pressure can build up again and cause detonation. That can't be fixed with more duration.

Try and pinpoint where the detonation is occuring. Have a friend with a trained ear ride with you.
