My 1980 TR8 (carbs) is mainly stock. It has a Pertronix Distributor with the Igniter 1 Module that the previous owner installed. The vacuum advance is hooked up to the proper port on the carb, the vacuum retard is plugged. The car starts up quickly and runs well.
I have been fixing Little thing that needed repair...... I am now ready to start going through the engine. I think the car should have a little more pickup. I haven't adjusted the carbs or the timing yet. Once the snow melts and the salt is off the road I am going to look at and possibly advance the timing.
I read here the Pertronix Dist had a less aggressive advance than the stock unit. Is this true?
Has anyone recurved a Pertonix or stock Dist?
What is the best Dist/Ignition set up for the TR8?
Anyone recurve the distributor?
