blue smoke tends to be oil, maybe related to your recent head swap

Ok well i set it to 39 wit vac line off n it smoked for a sec until i took it for a 10 min ride now no more smoke... guess runs ok not super happy need to mess with timing more to find sweet spot ..i got the h/c/i n they all supposedly compliment eachother dunno y i gotta advance mine so much...gt40s,e303,cobra upper/lower, 65mm thottlebody,bbk adj fpr, stock inj&maf uh timing needs to b bumpd up for horsepower /torque or shouldnt base timing b like a stock motor??

base timing and advance should still be nearly identical to a stock motor.

Yeah man thats what i thought..Any ideas why i would need to advance my timing like almost as far as i can turn it before hitting lower intake water neck? Is it from doing my base idle reset with it already advanced? I mean should i be using the spout connector still? for some reason when i put timing back to normal (notched on dizzy an block) i lose all "seat of pants torque" until over 3 grand if at all..im guessing its from doing a base idle reset with timing already advanced..so u think i should back timing down to normal setting THEN do base idle reset? uhg
