first of all, do u know how to go about doing this timing advance?? u do have to run high octane fuel for about 2 tanks of gas before u even do it....and 15 degrees is the best, but if u hear detonation or pinging, retard it a couple degrees!

Check the timing before you do it. If it's under 15, you advance, if it's over 15, you retard.

...

heheheh.. I just wanted to call someone a retard. Man, sometimes I'm just too clever for my own good.

I visit CA a lot and have used the 91 octane there and my timing is at 15*. No problems whatsoever. I have even run 89 on occasion w/o problems.

why do people believe in those octane boosters? especially if your car isnt pinging, it doesnt do any good to spend money on it. its like running premium fuel when all you need is 87

i know that this may sound wierd and even impossible but im running my ga16 @ 19* right now with no detonation at all with 93 octane fuel

btw the car pulls really hard on 1st and 2nd gear but after 3rd it slows down a bit
