    I have an adjustable cam gear and I have adjusted it, but when it was put on I'm not too sure that it was put on at 0. I had to play with the timing a little bit to mess with my car idle and for it to run good.

    How do i adjust timing to get it back to factory settings ?

    set your cam gears back to 0 degrees and hit your car with the timing light

    I tried that, could my timing be off if my timing belt was off one tooth ? or would my engine go *Boom* with it one tooth off ?

    one tooth off wouldn't do much damage, if any at all. i ran my car for 2 weeks one tooth off. hurt nothing, but the car bogged until vtec, and vtec screamed like a virgin on prom night.
