Your target should be 15 degrees. Make sure you use the factory method for setting the timing. You can't just hook up a timing light and check the timing. You have to put the engine into timing mode.Dilong26 said:what should the timing be for the G? not advanced. my car is stock and im just trying to get it to run right.
is it bad to advance the timimg (to 19*) just using a timing light?jjacob said:Your target should be 15 degrees. Make sure you use the factory method for setting the timing. You can't just hook up a timing light and check the timing. You have to put the engine into timing mode.

a couple of marks on the balancer are closer together than the others. the one in the middle of the close together markings should be stock setting of 15 degrees. mark the mark that you want to adjust the timing to with white out (obviously while the engine is turned off!!) this will make the mark easier to see with the timing lightbrammes said:i can see the marks on the pulley, but i cant tell which one is which...any guidance would be helpful lol
Your "techs" are incorrect. You need to use a timing light, and you need to follow the factory procedure. Nissan knows a little more than the guys you are talking to. The factory procedure is easy and adds like only two minutes to the procedure. Why wouldn't you want to do it the right way?ICE said:hey guys i drive a b13 but same motor so same family
anyways..iv asked a few techs and they all tell me that you just need to turb the dizzi up and 2 clicks back to be at 19 degrees and they said theres no NEED for a timing light but you can use one. Is there really any harm in doing it this way? and about the ecu not learning the timing adjust isnt true from what i have heard since the timing goes by the dizzi and it runs the motor you dont need to do the "rain dance"
im not a smart ass i just want to know if this is true. Cuz i did my timing before i knew all this and i did it just by turning it all the way up and 2 clicks back and i tfeel the difference.....also if i do end up needing to do the rain dance can i still do it even though its moved already?
