to set timing, you need to put jumper in the diagnose connector. I for get which pin exactly, but it's the same one you use to read your code for obd1.

Just loosen your distributer and turn it clock wise (advance) and counter clock ( retard) and at the same time look at your timing mark. I set my to 18 BTDC and it seem to be pretty good, but not dyno yet. Stock is at 10 BTDC.

Im not exact on the rotation of distributer for advance/retard.
Been awhile since I last check timing.

Get your timing light. Hook it up as directed by the instructions for your timing light - one lead will hook up to number 1 spark lead.

Then check idle speed.

Undo the nut that secures the distributor. Start engine and check the timing (should be 10 dgrees advance at the correct idle speed). Then rotate the distributor to adjust the timing. When you have set the timing to what you want it to be, tighten the nut. This will not affect the cam timing at all.

Of course, if you change the exhaust cam timing, you will need to correct the distributor timing.

A timing light is basically a xenon flash tube powered by the inductive current that passes thru a spark lead. It has 3 leads - 2 leads are connected to the positive and negative terminals of the battery and the third lead is connected to the spark lead for cylinder 1. When a current passes thru the spark lead, this induces a current in the circuitry which triggers a flash from the xenon flash tube.

The timing light is pointed at the crank pulley. There is a timing mark there which tells you where in the cycle the spark is occuring when it is referenced against the timing marks on the timing cover. For example, when the timing mark is flashes at 10 degrees, this means spark is occuring 10 degrees before top dead centre.

I see irony that you find it necessary to put the @ sign in the middle of "shit" so as not to be cussing yet you freely tell everyone to "fuck themselves." Anyway yeah I would like a legit dyno to be shown too as well as all your "super secret" mods. Also when you advance your timing as gianttomato said dont forget to jumper the diagnostic port as moua4c mentioned otherwise your timing is just going to jump all over the place.

Good Luck

the way I was told is keep going up untill you hear pinging(preingnition) then back off 4-5deg. you have to stay on the same fuel tho, and it's best set on a very very hot day.
