What is the timing difference?

The simple explanation, more timing advance the higher the HP and higher RPM needed to make it work. Running a lot of timing (19 plus degrees) at 1500-1800 is not good for pistons, rod bearings heads, bent rods and EGT.  Not to mention a few rods airing out engine blocks (throwing a leg out of bed)  Stock timing is 13-17 degrees depending on HP rating and year of production. The lower the timing advance the better the emissions but lack of power but easer on parts.

The old 865/866 ran up to 31 degrees in stock settings. There were a lot of cracked heads, bad bearings, thrown rods and blown head gaskets on them.
