    I just got my Edlebrock performer manifold on and I set the timing around about 5-6 degrees before. It seems a little off though. What degree should I set the timing to. I also have altitude to take into consideration, cause I thought I heard somewhere you need to set it for that to. Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    Do you mean 8 -10 degrees before top dead center? Cause my timing marks only go to 4 degrees. This was my first time doing my own timing so I don't know to much about it.
