I am running a 455 Buick with a edlebrock 600cfm and swinging a 72 super snapper pretty well and I have timing set to 32* and an idle 11* and it’s more responsive and better on fuel than my 650cfm Holley vacuum secondary I had on it and I tuned it to maintain 480* exhaust temperature at wide open th...

Re: 400 sbc timing

I generally set base @ 13 degrees on my Buick and it hits 32 degrees before 1500 rpm and I don’t care if it’s at 90 outside or 220 the engine fires right up

Re: p0087 silverado duramax

Never seen anyone properly rebuild the filter housing with success. The filter housing from GM isn’t that expensive depending on year model. I would install a FASS fuel system on the truck and never look back. And a P0087 code is low rail pressure caused by lack of fuel to the injection pump or pump...
