you can run a timing locked but you will need to have a timing retard for starting, I know a lot of guys that do but you will notice it on the bottom end,.

We don't run a lot of timing on BBFs. I wouldn't run a start retard.

I have always locked the timing out on all my race and street cars, just let it roll before hitting the ignition to start you will be fine...

mine wanted 36* and my ole cars wanted 38*  it all depends what your car wants, all this 30 or less is not always right, every engine wants what it wants. Not everyone lives at 1000 feet or less sometimes when I race and the corrected elevation is 5000 to 9000 feet
