Okay, I hope I get some experienced help here and this is the right forum.. Yes, I do have a shop manual [haynes, not the best but it will do] and I need some specifics about the timing. I just did a DPFI to MPFI swap and although I am not experiencing any serious problems, I know that all the mods made to my engine, should be giving me more HP. I have a 1.5 L, with intake[cool air], headers 4-2-1, cam[272 degr], major head work with a 10.5:1 compr., MSD, 11 lbs. flywheel.. Okay, when I start the car, bring up to operating temp, jump the connector wires under the dash, and put on the timing light, the 3 marks are all the way to the right, past the V in the belt.. now, I think that anything to the right is ADVANCED?? Is that correct? and if the marks go to the left, move to the left, then that is RETARDED?? Is that correct?
