OEM is 10 degrees, however I set all my cars up at 12 if you plan to run reg gas, 14 if you are going to be on a steady diet of premium.

Uhm, I don't quite understand your reply. I always set my guns at 0 and read from the timing tab. 12 is the furthest most edge of the tab to the rear of the car. If you have a digital gun yes you can set the gun for 12 or 14 and then attempt to read Zero on the tab, but I really don't like that method.

 Sorry it would help if I knew what I was talking about. thank you for clearing it up for me I have never done it and had another fiero friend do it for me so again thank you for clearing that up.  Would that cause poor gas milage I went 120 miles on about 8.5 gallons?

This may not apply to your situation, but read my last post (as of today) on page 2 in This thread.
