    I might be money and time ahead to get some nice studs made, thread-all is some pretty cheap stuff.

    do you think that the all-thread under extreme boost will stretch & crate a vacuum leak, you might want hardened studs or grade 8 ? looks good though !

    Right now I run 30* of timing locked out and have made a few good pulls at 14psi on 91 pump gas, plugs look great and have no detonation. I run the programable 6 box wich has a boost curve retard option wich will pull up to .1* of timing for every .1* of boost on a map sensor set up. I have not had time to set this option up yet so I just have it locked at 30*

    When I do set it up I will start at 39* and slowly pull it back to say 34* as the vaccume goes away with the run retard option then let the boost retart do the rest from there. That way you will get optimal fuel burn when cruising around and the responce when you hit it hard will be much better.

    Mark, are you still planning on the winter dyno session?

    Cool, that sounds like the way to go to me.

    On 91 pump gas i don't think i would be able to hear the motor over the ping'n noise.

    I think this sounds like a very good idea, i have a timing retard box from my old hi compression motors for easier starting. Is it the same box with the addition of some kind of device that measures the boost?

    I completely understand the difference in cam and ignition timing, I just could not believe you would consider only 20 degrees ignition timing. When I worked at Banks in the late 70's, 28 degrees was the standard recomendation.

    28 degrees total would be a good place to get started. Perhaps I would put a little more in it now days, based on my experience, fuel and amount of boost, among other things.

    One other option might be a boost-retard setup if you run mostly out of boost.
