My wifes 94 350 is 0* and my pops 1990 350 ( both TBI truck motors) is 0* also. I know they are not the same years as yours but it gives you a reference point. Just make sure the computer is disconnected from the distributor when you time it or it change by it's self.

unplug youe est wire(tan wire with black stripe) which is located behind the panel on the firewall on a 92. start the truck and set the timing. Factory timing is 0 degrees you can advance by 2 degrees at a time if you like until you fear detonation. I have mine at 8 degrees. Shut the truck off then reconnect wire and you are done.

Most setups like that you have to unplug battery before you plug the EST back in. Chevy's stock MPFI timing settings are normally set at 6. I have my base timing at 10. Play with it and see what works best for you.
