Rade,
Most of the 5.0 performance guys run their timing to as much as 13-14
advanced. Yes 10 degrees is the correct base. And heck no, it wont cause any
low end power loss. Just make sure you run good gas in it and you wont hear
any detonation noise at all.

Blake,

If Ford is like Dodge all you do is take it to a dealer (don't have to be
the original owner) and they look up the VIN to see if ALL recalls have
been preformed.


John with a Tempo and Grand Caravan both had recalls.

I always run 92 octane anyway, so that is no problem. Hopefully my knock
sensor is working to keep everything stable. I drove it about 350 miles
today on a trip, and advancing the timing made a noticeable difference in
power. Inclines that usually made the AOD downshift were handled with ease.
Thanks for the advice.

Rade

Rade,
No problem. I have been fooling with timing and such on HAZMAT to try and
squeeze as much power out of it to run the NO2. So far I spraying a 100
horsepower shot and running my timing at 12 degrees base on 93 octane and 1
can of 104+ octane boost.
Glad I could help.
