Timing on 1993 460 V8 Engine

Hey all, I am curious to know how any of you with this engine adjust the timing on this engine for power or for economy. Thanks.

Re: Timing on 1993 460 V8 Engine

My engine right now I believe is set at 5 degrees advanced. Is this a good setting?

Should be set at 10 degrees before top dead center. Look at the emissions sticker under the hood to verify this.

Thanks for the info. How far can I advance it before it starts pinging?

I would just set the timing to 10 degrees before top dead center and allow the PCM to take care of the rest.
