So im coming from small block stuff with a distributor.

I want to dive into gen3 stuff and I cant find the timing stuf anywhere.

I would be running the Hemi MSD box for ignition. My question is how do you set
Initial timing?


Sorry if I sound dumb AF but ive read and read and cant find this answer

Thanks !

I think the hemi 6 comes with a base timing curve in it.then you either buy the MSD hand held programmer of use a lap top to make adjustments.it is easier to use lap top than the hand held.

You will need a laptop and you download the MSD software the hemi 6 will plug into your laptop (you will need a serial to USB adapter ) and you setup the timing there I don’t think it comes with a curve I can’t remember but the mad guys are good and can walk you through the setup

Ok gotcha. Very similar to my 6al2 then

Didnt know if anything on the motor to set initial timing like you
Would with adjusting a dizzy ya know.

Ive read timing numbers are very low as compared to a small block?

No 22-25 degrees total is all you need

In case you have moved or changed sensors or even if you haven't, its a good idea to check with timing light after getting her running.

First check timing marks for accuracy with the positive stop method. Then put a light on idling and see what you have. Ideally set up a "timing tune" with timing fixed at something like 15 degrees and verify that is what you have with a light.
