Man, if ScortGT has his all the way advanced, that´s something like 18 degrees advanced. The Miata group recommends up to 14 , 16 max. Hope you´re running high-test! At18, a lean-accident could kill your valves.

So you´re saying that you should advance timing until you get a slightly higher idle? Could you explain this a little more?

Also...
I don´t have a light, but I plan on buying one soon. What kind of light should I get?
Also, I can´t seem to locate the crankshaft degree meter. It´s on the left side of the crankshaft, when looking down into the engine bay standing in front of the car? I don´t see any meters down there...

And isn´t advanced timing supposed to help low end torque, but HURT top end horsepower? Could somebody clear this up?
