Hmmmm...then why the claim that advancing the ignition timing on n/a
engines helps in the low end but hurts the high end?  (this "claim"
is a common one on the list when discussion ignition advance)

And why the vacuum advance feature on the distributor?  You are likely
to be at or near full-throttle when in the higher rpm ranges, hence
minimal vacuum, so ignition timing is not advanced. 

'85 Coupe GT, pings with the factory ignition timing  :(
