No I don't know what that advance box is but a gas or taxi service mob should know.

98 and gas is the way to go as the RONS are very close.

As I said my base timing is 18 and no probs, got the right note out the pipe, starts easy, no pinging.
Should of done it years ago!

Those timing advancers usually operate off a crank angle sensor, so not really compatible with a dizzy ignition.
Your best result would be to run a dual spark map ECU, like the Tickford gas cars ran.

Be fairly hard to find though.

Doesnt the EL use a dizzy? thought timing could be done with a J3, or are these examples without J3?

I have a J3 with 98RON tune, and its terrible in my car. Cant work out whats going on.
