Expert:  George H. replied 1 year ago.
The ignition timing is non adjustable on this engine, the PCM will control it based on its sensor input.
The physical timing is when the wide machined tooth of the crankshaft position reluctor passes the tip of the crankshaft position sensor #1 piston will be at TDC on its compression stroke.
Please let me know how I can help
