My car is so much more fun to drive now since doing that and I havn't got it tuned optimumly yet.

There's alot more information about all that in Keiths thread on timing that is on page 2 now until someone posts in it again.
Ultimate 930 Distributor, advance, retard, timing, Turbo lag, MSD, mod, thread.
When you do this, do you remove the vacuum line from the distributor and let the MSD handle all the retard or do you use them in combination?
