Good! I want to know when it happens, so I can be there. I would assume Kennedale, since you both live in the fort worth area.

lmao I had 26* of timing in the tune JP not 32* there isn't any signs of detonation on the pistons at all. The motor over heated when that happened. That might have something to do with it but who knows. The piston really isn't bad looking at all. I think the rings butted up and caused the ring land middle ring land to lift a little. I probably didn't gap them enough. This was at 23lbs of boost. It's not a big deal I really only need to replace 1 piston, but I'll probably put a new set in a bump the compression up a little more.

I can have it back up in a week or so but I'm going to do something to it while its down so it might be a few more weeks.

Hell yeah....throw some more timing at it then! Good way to set timing is take the amount of boost your running, add 10 to that...and roll with it. So that's 33 degrees for you, maybe throw 5 more degrees in there since it a race car. If you hear something rattling in the motor, stay in it...show your pistons who's boss.

The car idles now like a stock car and is very very smooth. The best it has ever been really.

just going off what you said. you said people are running 32* and that at 24* you were getting spark cut and you bumped it up more...

26 degrees sounds like alot of timing to me at full boost... Then again what do I know. I run like 13 degrees on my piece of crap.

Any boosted motor is going to pick up power if you add timing, to a certain degree, then you damage stuff. Its going to come into boost fast and sound awesome too. Timing is the devil, so you need to set it conservative and leave it alone. Add boost. If you are having to crank a bunch of timing into it, IMO, somethings not right.

I would read what CollinsAuto is saying on Yellowbullet, to me, his theory makes alot sense.
