I was planning on advaning my timing but I was told it kills your starter faster. Is this true, this came from an old school dude, not sure if he's right nor not but on our cars if I run premium and only go up to 15* will I have any problems with this or any other problems at all?

I searched around and no one mentioned having this problem but I'm curious as to know if it is true or not.

thanks

I have 20 degrees fixed advance and my starter spins happily (e16)
Our 'first' ga16 with 35 - 40° fixed advance sometimes spins not so happily
There are a group of toyota 4ag people that run around 40 - 42° fixed advance and their starters fail almost regularly
All those starter units are 'direct drive'
We would like to try with a diesel starter (reductor gear) to get more service life under more than 40 degrees initial/fixed advance...

If your starter is a direct drive, like Toyata^^^^, and does'nt retract after the car starts. Advancing your timming will indeed toast your starter.
so in a toyota yes, my nissan no.
