Getting ready to install a set of steeda pulleys and a timing adjuster. My question is what degree of advance are you guys running and what octane gas are you using. My engine is stock, except for the pulleys and silencer removal. The best gas I can get around here is 94 octane, although 93 is way easier to find. I want to set the T/A to be able to accept 93. What should I set the T/A at? Thanks for your help.

I run either 14-15* and 89 octane that has worked best for me.

89 octane? I would have thought that I would have to use at least 93. Thats cool!
Thanks for your help guys!
Just be sure you're not getting any spark knock from it. That should really determine what octane you use with the advanced timing. On our cars, you will get a bit of surging (feels like the car is missing a bit, or "hiccupping") at slower cruising speeds with the timing advanced. It happens, so don't let that bug you. Just listen for spark knock.
