« on: April 10, 2010, 10:31:00 am »
Just purchased a '03 Connie & have been look'n @ possible engine / timing advances . . My question is ~~ Would a 4degree timing advance or exhaust cam sprocket be a better choice for increasing low & mid range TQ & better roll-on performance TextText

You might want to post this in the C10 section. The people over there may know more about it. You might get better answers!  ;)    Bionic Bob  COG & AMA member  First C14 CDA member #0220  08 C14,03 Mean Streak, & 86 C10

Hi,  I'm biting my tongue but I can't hold out any longer.  Should have bought a 1400.    Later,  Norm :)

I loved my 03. I would more than likely still have her if disaster didn't strike. Yes I have a C14. But I also went the other way and bought an 86 as a restoration project!    Bionic Bob  COG & AMA member  First C14 CDA member #0220  08 C14,03 Mean Streak, & 86 C10

I had an 05 and it didn't lack torque. Past 6000 rpm to went to hyperdrive! Always two up and loaded for long distance. Never a wanted for more. Put 137,000 miles on that thing. Ran strong till I sold it. On a C14 now.    I say don't diddle with it just ride it!    UP
