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

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.

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
