You need to find someone that has an advance timing light. With it they can set the total advance at 35 degrees at 2,000 RPM. That will be your best performance setting.

Before, and it really depends on what you are calling "modified" if you put a "hotter" cam in, sometimes the stock timing won't do it justice. You have to play with the timing and see what works best. Usually, advancing it 1 or 2 degrees gives the best result.

You can usually start out about 8 degrees BTDC with no pinging. Increase 1 or 2 degrees at a time during normal operation until you hear pinging and then back off 2 degrees. On a dragstrip, increase timing 1 or 2 degrees at a time until best mph is observed.

What should the timing be set to for a Chevy 350 with Edelbrock Torker plus camshaft?

On most stock SB 350s the timing should be fine at 6-8 degree's Before Top Dead Center AKA BTDC. However if the cam is not stock you may want to contact the cam's manufacturer for the best timing suitable for your cam. I personally set the timing until I obtain the best performance I want to achieve. , EzForJesus If you are looking for the best performance possible, get a timing light that will check your timing at full advance. Start off at about 40 degrees total timing (engine running above 2800 rpm) and vary it up or down a few degrees until peak performance is found. Best accomplished at a drag strip on test'n'tune night.

How many degrees advance should you be set on sbc 350 with Vortec heads HEI distributor Edlebrock Performer manifold 488 lift 292 duration cam and should the timing be set without the vacuum advance?

Timing should always be set without vacuum hooked up. Initial timing should be around 12-15 BTDC at idle - around 24-26 BTDC at 3000 RPM's - and around 36-38 BTDC at 3000 RPM's with vacuum hooked up. There's (3) stages to timing on sbc:10 degrees initial10 degrees mechanical advance (the weighted springs in the distributor)10 degrees vacuum advance These will vary depending on carb/intake/cam setups. Hope this helps!The lower the compression, the more timing you'll need. Could be up to 18 degrees at idle (42 degrees total.) I'd start at 38 degrees total and go up and down a little at a time until you find the best performance.That cam likes compression. The more the merrier. At least 10:1.
