I give up GL trying to get anything done if you expect me to spoon feed it to you.

No. It controls the timing of the engine to prevent knock. Read the FAQ ALL the way through...it will help you out.

Search for like "DIY" threads and look at peoples setup and try to figure out exactly what you might need.

it's not hard to do...if you want these results, try 6psi, 87 octane and 14° static timing (and probably not enough fuel).


the same pistons could have lasted 15-20psi, if there was actually a tune on it.
