I have a 2002 mustang on intake headers&exhaust no cats. I also have a diablo sport tuner. My question is what's the highest shot a v6 3.8l motor? with what gas should I be running it 100 or 110? Thanks let me know opinions or good answears cuz as off right now am running a 75 shot with 110 gas and it pulls stupid with the timeing set at 3 degrees but am looking to go for a bigger shot

Are you using a wet kit? What pills are you using now? Timing is way too low for 100/110. Even on 93 timing should be higher, but I would not suggest advancing it until it is on the rollers, and you have solid data. 14.2 seems a little low as well, and it would venture to guess it is in the tune.....

Please get a dynotune before spraying it again. I'm running about a 120 shot on a stock motor, but I have everything else setup properly, and I can care less if it blows. I can help you once we get the tune figured out.......

There's really no need for 110 with what you have......

Well no detonations with the 75 shot....like 2 weeks ago I switched my shot to
103 I lower the timing to 1 and its run bomb and I have to use 110 cuz if I use regular gas it acts up it detonates a lil bit on 3rd gear and 4th...aluminum drive shaft helps alot!!

upgrading the ignition should make a big difference, the stock plug may be the problem, the coil pack, larger injectors,fuel pressure?? you may be falling to the lean side when you're spraying,
