Default issues..

so my buddy just bought a 90 GT. Here is whats done. Trick flow upper and lowers(street heat) F303, GT40 heads, T5 worldclass, oversized radiator, Long tubes into off road H, flows. We took it for a spin thinking this thing would snap our necks back... not so much. My stock 88 pulls harder than this thing. The guy that he bought it from said "the timing needs to be set."

Could that really effect the performance that much to feel next to nothing when it's floored? Thanks

Set the timing to 16 degrees! Hopefully he advanced the cam timing a bit as well!
