Everyone who ones a BHJ balancer must check that the reluctor ring is installed right. MIne was off 6 degrees retarded and caused me a whole heap of trouble assuming that it was right on. Back probe the crank sensor signal wire and turn the motor and watch the timing tab where the voltage drops on the voltmeter
 
This is why I recommend everyone check their timing as one of the first steps in tuning. I have also seen factory balancers of by a few degrees. I prefer to lock the timing and use a timing light to verify through the rpm range.

Norbs, is this the one you are using?

Yes its on the car st, I will have to advance the timing to compensate 6 degrees. Or change the offset angle in the Fast, but I keep trying different setups , stock computer sometimes too.
 
the stock computer stuff has the same kind of spark angle offset capability as the fast. What you need to do is check the timing with a timing light.
