Karl Knows All

Well after mucking arround with my car trying to find power, i went for broke with the timing as NZ sujested 2months ago lol. Well i advanced it a total of 40deg from when i first got it running, and boy does it get up and move now. I can drop EF/L's no problem, and took down a VP V6 calais lastnight.

All of this is with the car breathing hot air from behind the radiator (no snorkel yet as ive still got EA thermostat housing), standard filter and dodgy stock EA exhaust with is more than likely colapsed 12yrold cat.

Re: Karl Knows All

Ahh glad to see you've found the problem! At the end of the day it's all worth it as at least now you have the knowledge in the future...

Re: Karl Knows All

So if I were to advance my timing by 40 degrees, would that make the old crate quicker? Isn't 40 degrees too much? Please explain to me here, I'm not that knowledgable when it comes to timing...

Re: Karl Knows All

I understand the timing was highly retarted to begin with. The most I've heard of on an is 20 degrees advanced from TDC.

Good stuff Walkinshaw.
