Hey, just wanted to make a couple comments. I have a next door neighbor that is a state patrolman and 2 other state patrolman live within one block of me. The closest comes over and visits sometimes when I am tuning on my race car and the others have never stopped by for business or personal reasons.

Final comments. I have no doubt that your engine is responsive with 30 degrees timing. It looks like a SBC and they love timing, escpecially the 350 and shorter stroke. I run my 355 with 38 degrees total timing. My engine makes its best power there. I leave the line at 5,000rpm and shift at 8,000rpm.

Keep tuning with timing and fuel you may be surprise.

Jeff

Jeff I agree. I am now running 38 degrees and is even more responsive. It is a 377 ci with a 400 block and 350 stroke. I have a highway patrol officer up the street that always loves the sound it makes Very Happy
