    Can you tell a difference after bumping the timing? If you don't hear any pinging it should be good.

    It was at 12 because I still had regular in it ... Let me tell you the difference from 6* to 10* is like night and day and it seems to be getting better gas Miliage

    I'll try bumping to 12 and leave it there if it pings I'll turn it back down .. doesn't hurt to try

    You should be able to get more timing out of it then just 12. A buddy of mine went up 1 degree at a time to 18 and it finally started pinging ever so slightly, back it down to 17 and it was perfect. Nice improvment for sure.

    So BIG update no pics yet-
    I had some of my specs off when i made the orig post

    This week comes-

    317CI Stroker
    Eagle roatating assembly Forged
    Comp Cam
    Edlebrock Performer RPMs
    GT40 upper and lower
    24lb injectors.

    Picked up a C&L 76mm for 24s , Spark Plugs, TOB, Antifreeze and misc gaskets and crap. Als0 have a RAM HDX going in it . Should be a nice little boost in power. Motor made 480 with a Vortech on it when it was built. Should make like 320-350 without the blower . Eventually i will go supercharged but i couldnt pass up the motor for the price.

    Picked the whole motor up for 1500- The rotating assembly is probably that alone. There is not a hole lot of miles on it its been ran and moved around most of its life.

    Sweet thread! Love the updates. I love Simple Green!

    Can't tell you how much better the car looks lowered. Goodness gracious! Looks killer. How do you like the Eibach springs with the blues struts/shocks?

    Thank you , it makes it worth it to post when people notice!! I like the ride. It is not harsh doesn't jar you too bad but you still know it is lowered. My 00gt with h&r ss and kybs rode like it was on leaf springs, this is much better
