Question

How many of you are running an advance kit on your car? Which springs have given you the best result?

This is very subjective... To give you an idea I had to use the heavy springs, the existing cam (did turn it over though) and the weights that came with the kit. The quality of the kit I got was very cheap. It took 5 or 6 times before I got the results close to what I wanted...

If you can find a shop with a dist machine, the hour labor is well worth it. If your going to do it yourself, get the best kit you can find. Make sure you have a timing light that lets you dial the readings and plan the whole day. If you get lucky the first or second combo you try you will be way ahead of me....
