Timing on a 95 5.0 Mustang?

I just got my 1995 5.0 mustang back from my mechanic. He was repairing some electrical problems.

The timing was advanced, and the the engine was "pinging" during heavy acceleration. For some reason I thought this was normal for Fords. He set the engine at with no advance. There is no pinging, but the gas mileage isn;t the same, and the performance is even worse.

Any 95 mustang owners or others that can give me advice??

Thanks !! chris

Stock is 10 I believe, put it at 10-12 and you will be fine.

94 and 95 5.0 mustangs are notorious for pinging!believe me i know i have one!It all has to do with the factory tune of the 94,95 ecu.If you truely want to eliminate the ping either get a custon tune or swap the stock ecu for a 89 to 93 A9L ecu!Its not a direct swap Pro-M used to sell the kit but they folded.But you can find a used one either on ebay or some other Mustang websites!One question!How did you lose gas milege by backing off the timming?Correct me if i am wrong but you should have gained some miles by backing off or putting it back to stock!

The lower gas mileage was just an observation on my part, nothing scientific. I may have been wrong. I just noticed slower overall acceleration, and I hit the gas station ealier than usual afterwards. I may have been stomping the pedal a little harder

After my AC stopped working and the outside temps went up, gas mileage didn;t seem like such a big concern. Thanks for the info on the pinging.

14* is the max you can go, and that is with 93 octane gas. For max power gains, go as high as possible, but 14* is the most I have been able to run. That was a couple years back, before the nitrous. Stock timing is 10*. don't forget to pull the gray chip...

no, they had a distributor until 1995.....

when the change was made to the 4.6 mod motor, then it was the DIS....

I dont see y you dont just do a trial and error tune. Just up the timing to 14*.Then take it for a run and redline it at full throttle before you shift. and then if it pings drop it by 1* until the car feels like its about to ping but never does. Im figurin this will be the best bet without going out and buying a new comp. It might take a little bit of time to find the right timing but it'll be worth it.

you will lose gas mileage with decreased timing!
