how do you set base timing with pms?

Just getting my project to fire, and figuring out pms at same time. I tried setting base timing with the spout out to 10 deg but it didn't like it, set dizzy @ 0 deg and was better. Now the pms idle timing is set @ +10 deg so I guess that's why it likes 0 deg @ the balancer? still think there is to much timing @ idle but not sure where to go with it, should I pull idle timing out through pms so I can set the timing @ the balancer to 10 deg and go from there? I had the pms timing down to o and was about to change it @ the dizzy but one of my plug boots had a serious melt down and I had to stop. my setup is a 347 w/t-trim, 80mm maf,60 lb'rs, 575 lift cam if that helps.

you need to set the base timing to 10*btdc at the distributer manually. Then add/subtract everything else through the PMS.

Yes what grn said. Set base at 10 with spout out and pms at 0. Then go into the pms idle screen and set it at roughly 6 or where your car likes it at

Thanks for the input koolaid. You're from NE Pa, know any tuners that are familiar with the pms around an hour or so from Philly? And are good with blowers?

Sure thing Nitro. And no I don't know anyone at all. I'm currently using a pms4 with a blower also
