    It does not work on COP ignition systems. The only ways of doing it are: tuning, try the IAT resistor trick, or buy a LS1 Timing Tuner.

    I did multiple searches in this Nitrous forum, but no posts came up regarding this. Do you have instructions + pictures on how to do this? Thanks!

    you need a Timing Tuner for the retard.
    All the maximizer does is set a signal when to pull timing. You can set @ which % you start pulling time, but it's only a signal... you need a device that actually pulls the timing based on that signal.
    Also note that you can configure the Maximizer to have the signal grounded/Vcc when activated... it's in the options.

    You might want to upgrade your fuel pump. The Racetronix kits are pretty easy to install. For more info:

    How is this even pertinent to whether or not anyone has figured out how to pull timing with the Max II? F-

    I'll just use the aforementioned potentiometer method and monitor it with HPTuners. I'm not ready to drop $50+ on even a used RamChargers timing tuner.
