What octane fuel for what compression ratio?
« on: May 09, 2007, 01:40:50 PM »
I have been told many diffrent opinions on this subject and was wondering what compression ratios you guys are running and what octane fuel you use. I am running 10.25 and have been told three diffrent things from three diffrent places. One says 94 octane and another says 100 octane and the other says 96.

marc how is it you have that much compression with d3 heads? my 502 with d3's had 10.5 to 1 and i ran it on 92 and 38* of timing. let me know. somewhere on the forum i posted a comp ratio calculator. i'll look around and see if i can find it.

thats what i'm saying.
how much timing do you have? do you have flat tops, dished or domed pistons? now i'm not really shure about this but how much is your timing at the gear? straight up or does it have advance allready in it? should be like 8* or something.

none on the river and lakes to much agua  octane boosters  are okey but by the time you pay for 92 and the octane boooster better of paying a few cense more for some 106 race gas just my thought ;)

I've talked to Marc about this so I guess it's OK to fock up his thread   >:D 


What is total timing? How is it figured out? What does it mean? How can it be changed?


I can set a SBC at 10 before TDC but what in the hell is 38, 43, hut hut hike?   ;D

38 and such will be your TOTAL advance, after your advance is all in. 10 btdc is your initial advance, like at idle. You gotta run your RPMs up to about 2500 to set total advance, then check where your initial lead is, subtract that from your total and thats how much you have in your distributer.
