  • 3L timing

    so i dyno tuned my 3L myself and i have a few more mods going on it before i throw the motor on. but i was wondering what your guys' spark timing was at wot? mine is about 21-25*. seems a bit low but i havent messed with it at all.
    has an of you tuned spark and what is yours running? im wanting to advance it more towards 30

    Build knock headphones. Wear them on the dyno. Make sure they work well and drown out noise. Advance the timing until it stops making more power (and not knocking) then go back to the last value that added power and knock it down a degree or two. Too much ignition timing is worthless and just creates problems. Ill check what my NA tune had as max timing although it was never fully tuned 100% since that was just 'backup mode'
