According to "Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords" magazine (July '96, pg.
166):

"Most 5-liters come with 10 degrees or less initial timing from the
factory. In most cases, the timing may be advanced substantially for a
dramatic improvement in ET. Most 5-liters can take at least 14 degrees,
but we've seen as much as 18 degrees in a stock 5-liter using good pump
gas (93 or 94 octane)."

I cannot vouch for this information from personal experience, but since
they printed it it must be true, right?

Sounds like you're on the right track. Just advance it a little at a
time and test, test, test. When you and your truck agree on an optimum
setting, post it. Good luck.

Here's an idea, Tony: when I needed new rubber for my '94 XL I went to a
customizing shop and asked for factory take-offs. In their warehouse
they found a set of alloy rims from an early '70s truck with brand new
Tiger Paws (still had the little casting sprues) already mounted. I got
tires, wheels, lugnuts, and all for only $500, and IMHO the old style
5-spoke alloy rims look very cool on a late model truck. Look for shops
in the Elkhart area (Northeastern Indiana); they make lots of conversion
vans and RVs there and often have PILES of factory wheels, seats, and
other stuff you can get super cheap. Good hunting!
