..think of it as lightening the distributor.
Yep, that's about what I got, maybe a couple millimeters or so. I guess a person could grind out the entire end of the slot and open her up for even more adjustment, but the vacuum advance/retard can limits how much you can turn the I think you found out as well.
I'm looking forward to the 1.0 gram weight reduction. Should shave off .0000000000000000000001 second from my lap time.
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
