I have a question, in my '86 VG30i, I adjusted my distributor based on how healthy the idle sounds, but with the healthiest sounding idle, it was far slower on acceleration than a little ahead/behind. (Couldn't remember which one I made it.) But the fastest accelerating adjustment barely sounded healthy. My question is, why is this? I did what tinkersalot said and adjusted to performance, but I guess my question is really why isn't the healthiest sounding the best?
