I'm going to get my car dyno'd sometime next week. I have an air/fuel recalibrator(it has 8 switches inside) and timing adjustmant dial. Similar to the "Happy Knob" on ZZP. I don't know sh*t :confused: about how to tune for more power or less kr. I will ask the tech at the dyno for help but I was wondering if any of you guys had some advice.
Thanks

First tune in the fuel, then do the timing. Pull back timing until you are not knocking, then check the fuel again. Start putting it back in a degree at a time until you knock, then back it off. Do a couple iterations and you should be right on. Let us know how much you pick up. I would shoot for somewhere in between 11.5 and 12, but everyone has their own opinion on this.

Ok...I know I have to use the timing dial to adjust the timing but how do I adjust the fuel?

I do almost all of my own installs but when it comes to this tuning stuff I don't know jack. I'm trying to find a website or someone to explain some of the basics to me.

Thanks

PS: the car is a 2000 Monte Carlo SS with a csc kit and all supporting intake and exhaust mods...incase this helps.

I assume your air/fuel control interfaces with the MAF sensor. This will make you rich or lean. If you have too much fuel (like 10:1), then lean it out 5% or so then make another pull.
