If you were thinking of pulling the timing either through the ACT or the j&s you seriously need to get the SCT book , sit down and do some reading before you have to build an engine

No one should even attempt to try to do tuning with the PRP untill they have a full understanding of what is going on and the proper way to make SAFE changes

Then why would you think the timing gets pulled through the ACT or the J&S, Go back over the books or pay to get it tuned properly

One, because the J&S has a boost retard built on it. Two, timing has to be retarded when the charge air temp increases. I don't understand everything thats why I was asking in the "Pro Racer Help" thread. Why don't you remove this thread if it is BS.

The retard on the J&S is more for N2O, The stock ACT tables are already setup to pull timing as temps go up... there is no need to change them.

This isnt BS its here to help with issues not tuning 101 your questions could of been answere with 10 Min of reading the basis how to`s of tuning

Get the book "tuning for dummies" and it would of covered timing and where to make changes in the first section as the SCT book does

You stated that you had many books read them then when you have issues it wont sound like you havent even opened the covers

Were here to help but not with silly first grade questions , If you have the PRP you better get a good understanding of tuning or you will be buying many engines

I understand you want to learn and thats great, But first read the book and get an understanding of how things work then where to make the changes and what those changes do THEN if you have issues thats what were here to help with
