Well as some of you know or don't I had the car rolling roaded just to see where abouts I was with it, Its not a car specific map so before deciding to go thrashing it about I thought it best to get it checked. Now as it did its run Ben said there was a fair amount of DET after 6000RPM.

Here are the graphs from the run.





I've lowered the boost (haven't really driven it and certainly not past 6000rpm) I was advised to retard the ignition by a few degree's

Now not knowing how to do this, would it be an easy enough job to do myself and is there a guide as i can't seem to find one ?

I'd like to go down to Kent in it saturday but if it's def not a DIY job I'll leave well alone.

Thanks

clockwise to retard Yella,FFS dont advance it,best thing to do is find a garage that has a tim ing light and have it set to 15 deg @ 750 rpm with aircon off

EDIT : 15 degrees was actually mentioned, Cheers Mark and Jayne

mark the cas and the cas holder with a line,then slightly loosen the 3 bolts and turn the cas a couple of mm clockwise,you will prob only need 2mm then tighten the bolts,sometimes you may need a small hammer and very very gently tap the cas round,i know a garage over my way that can do the timing if you cant find one,the guy is a genious,he works on all ferraris,lotus and rally cars etc...(also has a rolling road),if you want his info pm me
