This is a hard one to follow. I would suggest the OP take a step back and spend some time learning and understand the basics of timing. This bling shotgun approach (while fun to watch) will not get you very far. Everything starts with the basics.
You're doing OK, fix the issue w/o worrying about vacuum advance first, then You can address adding it later. There are different "cans" that add different maximum amounts of timing, and then there is the spring tension adjustments, but none of that matters with Your right foot planted in the floorboards.By the time this video was posted I had already rolled back the gear. It's working well though, set it at 16* and getting 36* all in. No more tail pipe popping. I'm going to test drive it here in a bit. 1 thing I would like to ask about, the position of the AV is pointed directly at the intake leaving almost no room to plug in the VA. Is the VA neccessary? And if so would dropping the timing to 14 and giving the vaccum hose clearance be a bad thing? Does the VA make up the lost degrees?
