More advanced timing is better for FE (more power, etc) but there is a limit you approach where detonation happens and typically tuners approach the detonation limit then back off a few degrees.

Transmission is from a 93 Swift 1.3L 4-cyl. Much taller final drive than the XFi transmission.

As for timing, generally speaking, I've read that more advance is better. Of course you run the risk of ping under high loads the further forward you go.

What about a transmission From a 95 or 96 4 cyl ("Geo Metro") ? it is a 5 speed transmission, Please comment on this for me, THANKS.

Any of the 4-cyl transmissions will have a taller final drive than the 3-cyl versions. It may vary slightly depending on the model & wheel/tire size.

Congrats! It's quite the difference isn't it? Pleasant surprise.

You should fill in your garage info so we know more details about what you're driving.

Looking forward to your results.
