I actually did this on some Northstar powered Cadies with nitrous before the LS1s were out back in 1996, and naturally started doing it on LS1s. It works really well and combined with tuning you can tailor exactly how much timing to retard. The response time is much quicker than you might think, the reason it takes long to show up on some scanners is that the sampling rate is slow. I now usually wire it with a relay so when the nitrous actually activates (when the solenoids turn on) the retard takes place, that way there is full timing during launch until the nitrous turns on and then retards, doing it this way the 60' won't suffer if the nitrous turns on at a higher RPM than your converter stall.

Julio to the rescue......

This is why I prefer a fixed resistor and make the changes with the tuning software in the IAT tables.

Agreed, great advice.

Default Ive got it hooked up.. will i notice a differnce when the car is on.

Im going to test the system to see if it pulls the timing. Im turning on my nitrous system at idel to see if the cars timing will get pulled when there is power fed to the relay. Should i notice a differnce??

i heard if you have a 1997 or 1998 you can use a 4.5 ohm resistor, unplug the weather pack from the iat sensor connection and put the resistor leads into the pcm side of the connector and wrap it with electrical tape and this gains around 10 hp. Is this tru ???
