Default Timing

How many degrees of timing do you guys typically get from your cars?

Doesn't the timing vary depending on what speed the engine is at?

yeah.

i threw a tech2 on the lesabre yesterday, and while in park, just jabbing the gas got me 33 degrees of timing...

i was happy

haven't had a chance lately to go out with a tech2 on an actual drive. my car had been idling for about 20 minutes, and the IAT was reading 105 degrees (on a 15 degree day).

needless to say, I was happy, but wanted to know if it was pretty common for other l36'*...

It is going to be different on Supercharged and N/A'*, also if you have a aftermarket PCM you are more then likly commanding more timing. The Series 1'* N/A prob. have the most timing since they have the lower compresson.

Yep, engine speed and load.

More than stock, thanks to my Intense PCM (car'* tuned so it has to run on 93 now). How much timing you're pulling in a no load situation doesn't tell you anything about performance. I program chips for my Tuned Port fuel injected 327 chevy. If you look at one of the timing tables, you can pull a lot of timing in (up to 45 degrees in some spots) under low load situations, to help with throttle response and fuel economy. As load increases, the timing will back off.
