    Ok i've been searching for a while now and haven't found anything. Ok what my question is: How does this work now with using a paper clip to jump the ECU to set the ignition timing yourself with the distributor? where is it jumped? and what is the exact way of doing it? i have some idea but i'm not sure. This is for a 95 civic HB with a fully rebuilt 94 b18b1

    I am not sure if it is different for your ECU, but for My OBD1 P72 and for the OBD1 PR4 I was running before I did not have to jumper anything to change the timing.

    ok asked a round to some peopel that signed on ... yes there is a way to do it... and if your doing it the way i'm thinking .. the ECU is just resetting itself becasue ti thinks something is wrong

    http://jdmfan.com/technical/performance/ad...advancedtiming/

    there's a link that shows detailed instrustions and lets peopel know that the markings on the crank mean ....

    being the domestic guy in the import world get's confusing

    I have never had the ECU reset the timing. If I set it to 17 it is still at 17 when I come back two weeks later.

    Sounds like a load of crap,if you advance via the distributor it shouldn't auto retard it.

    60 was this morning, it's more like 65 or 70 now. :)

    Thanks, I'll try it next time I set my timing and see if it makes a difference.
