Through more searching I found that you can download the 6010 manual and it shows the timing curves of the different pills. After looking at the curves, I think #6 is what I want. Changed them out, didn't see a huge difference, but I'll stick with it for now...

Hey Jon,

I think you will find that NA LS engine aren't too sensitive to timing. More is not better, like old school engines.

Yeah, I've read that and that the main bitch about the Edelbrock setup I have is that it puts too much total timing in. After reading a bunch of threads though, it looks like #3 and #6 are the most popular choices, and after looking at MSD's info I don't really see a reason why those two would be the ones that people choose. Probably takes a dyno session to figure it out for sure, but that won't happen for a while.

Finally got this thing dynoed. 337/334 with an ignition issue, bad plug or wire, not sure. Would have changed them out, but they didn't have the parts at the dyno shop and we were time limited.

This is an L33 with 799 heads, .581 220/224 112+2 cam, I made long tube headers and mufflers, they weren't quiet enough so I stuck SuperTrapps on the end of the mufflers. I was thinking somewhere in the 325 to 350 whp range, so right in there. Would have been nice to have seen what it would do without the miss...
