Can anyone tell me what I should be running for timing on a Pontiac 400 at full advance--somepeople that I have talked to say 36-38 and others have said as high as 44.

We only run the 455 pontiacs but we never run more than about 32 degrees total. Don't know if this helps or not.

Ran one for years in a stock car ran 36 degrees timing when we ran more the head gasket would not take the extra timing.

Thanks guys--I think that I will leave the timing where I have it which is 36 seems to have run great there from what I could tell (they made my class run the wrong way this week so I would run out of gas in the corners)
