Default Advance timing on 1995 Mustang GT

I have a 95 gt with an all stock 5.0. I went to advance the timing and could not locate the spout connector that is supposed to be disconnected. There was a bundle of 7 wires coming from the distributor that all fed into one connector. From what i can remember, on the earlier models the spout connector was a separate wire that went from this bundle to another connector. I know some changes were made for the 94-95s in the electronics but i wasnt sure if that would have affected adjusting the timing. any help would be appreciated.

The spout is near the air filter housing.

12-14 is probalby as high as you want to go, but as long as your using 91-93 octane gas you can bump the timing up to around 16 degrees. just give it a test drive... if it pings under load back the timing of a degree or two.

Here is a neat set of directions for setting the timing. I found this thread here in the past. (With Pictures)

You set it right at the end of the metal plate where the tip comes to a point. Did you look at the link I posted just before this? It shows a picture.

16 is fine to run with 93 but you also have to watch for engine heating, to much advance can overheat a motor FAST, no matter what gas you run

If you're pinging at 14 degrees with good gas in it then you might wanna try a seafoam treatment in your intake.

I think they might only sell seafoam in the US though, so I don't know. You might want to just keep it at 12 or whatever you can run without pinging until you can change the heads.

If you are pinging at 14 with good gas, you need to back the timing closer to 10...

The reason it does not ping without the spout is because you are not getting any electronic advance...your timing is fixed with the spout out...

The sn can be very particular about timing. Some cars can see 16 with no problems, others are lucky to get 12...anything higher than 12 on my car makes pretty significant pinging...

Dial it back. Only way to address your issue.

Hey dude, whats up i aint been on in a couple of days but anyway i had a guy advance my 95 GT 5.0 whene i first got mine cause man im not all that great when it comes to doing all that timing advanceing and stuff. i mean timing one to get it crunck and all that is one thing but doing it with a timing light and pulling that spout and all that is another. im kind of old school im used to the old cars thay were much simpler. you know with the old quadrajet,s and points distributers but dont get me wrong i love this new technology i think its awsome i just have a lot more to lern about it all and i shall. but enough of all that but dude advanced my timing to 14 deg. and it has a slight pinging to it but not terribley bad. and i run el cheepo gas in mine and that may be my problem to ha and whene i swap my heads i wont need to worry about that 14 deg. will i.

If your engine is pinging at all then you need to back it off a little.

A stock 5.0 is not knock limited. This means that maximum torque will occur before pinging is reached. You are just hurting your engine for no gain at all.

More high-strung engines are knock limited (high compression, boost, etc). These will start pinging before max torque is reached so they would want to get as close as possible. For us it's not as big of a deal.
