Re: Timing adjustment

Why are you doing that or wanting to do it ?

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....

Re: Timing adjustment

Personally I don't think it'll do you any good. So no, I won't help you out but I'll send you a PM who I think will.

Re: Timing adjustment

our engines don't benifit too much from advanced timing. You just end up wasting more gas and running hotter. Your better off upping the fuel by pulling the vacuum off the FPR.

Don't bother with the V6 the timing will go back to the standard I have tried a few times to no avail
The only way I have got about 2-4KW of more power was with a K&N and I use the 98RON fuel we have in Australia all up it puts out about 125KW (about 170HP??????) up from the stock 121KW (164 HP)
Gill Starr-----I am interested in the vacuum line off the FPR never heard of this any info to share

Re: Timing adjustment

Actually our engines can have there timing changed as long as the car if in diagnostic mode. once out it will revert to it's stock setup until at wide open throttle.

as far as the FPR, pull off the vacuum hose leading to the intake runner #6. That will make you go richer the stock. Great for acceleration. The same hose is controlled by my nitrous management unit on my car but I used to run with out it prior to nitrous.
