Great product

November 12, 2015
Allowed me to dial in the timing on my 383 for good horsepower but slow enough to avoid detonation on lower octane fuel. Combined this with an adjustable vac advance to improve my mpg.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Adjustable Vacuum Advance Kit, GM HEI Distributor
(Part #28799600)

Adjust your GM HEI distributor for any driving condition. This kit allows you to change the amount of ignition vacuum advance for maximum part-throttle performance while preventing the harmful effects of spark knock (detonation). Dial in as much spark advance as conditions permit — add more advance under light load conditions to improve throttle response and fuel economy, or limit spark advance in high compression engines and high load conditions to eliminate knock.

  • Built-in stop prevents the adjustment screw from "backing out" like other designs
  • Easy to install
  • Includes 3/32" Allen wrench and easy-to-follow instructions
