So last year I bought a 95 gt, it ran ok to say the most. I always had idle issues like hanging idle and spark knock or pinging at idle and trailering/ bucking. So when I parked the car I pulled the motor out and re built it. It runs great now! No more spark knock but I'm still having a hanging idle that will go away after it sits at the stop light for a little while and I work at a repair shop and never have I ever had a car or anything for that matter burn your eyes the way this thing does if you start it or let it run in the shop.. o and it seems to idle better and drive smoother without the lttle pill plugged in by the maf

If your girlfriend takes it regularly, no baby.




But to answer your question, while you have the spout(little "pill" as you call it) removed, set your timing with a timing light to 12 degrees and put the spout back in. Problem solved. You cant time by "ear" thats an old wives-tale.
