    hello, im from germany and i have a question!
    i bought a 350 cui engine with trw flat top pistons (9:1 compression ratio), and a speedpro cam (278°/465 lift)
    and a edelbrock performer intake with a carter afb. a big air cleaner 450mm x 135mm high.
    i also bought a used h.e.i. ignition, i want to put on the engine.
    headers are already mounted.
    i use normal heads.
    what timing point (btdc) is good, but not to early to ruin my engine??????????
    the man i bought the engine told me that i would have 250 ps! is this possible or just talking [censored].
    so thats all, i hope someone could help me .
    thanks a lot, and excuse my bad englisch.

    Stock timing for a 350 is between 4-6* BTDC. That is where I would start, and see how that runs. You can always play with it. I am not that intune with timing to start with on a semi built motor though so you might wait on some other replies to see what they say too.
