Thread: Syncing Timing?

  1. #1

    Default Syncing Timing?

    OK, so I have my car up & idling. When syncing the idle, I go into my idle settings I make sure my the idle spark is not enabled. I adjust the timing so it matches what it says down in the idle tuning Data Monitor. Once I get them synced, I tighten down the distributor and then enable the Idle Spark, and then the computer takes it from there, does that sound correct? Also, should I worry about messing with the static timing or let the guy who is tuning my car worry about that? I'm still trying to get use to this EFI stuff, LOL. I've read the the thread on idle syncing a few times, just wanna make sure I'm doing it correctly. Thanks for the help!

    I think I'm understanding it now. Once I set my idle timing to match what's in my idle tuning Data Monitor, I go into the static timing, set it at 30°, if the timing at the balancer doesn't increase or decrease when revving up to 4000 RPM, everything is synced and I clear the static timing then enable my Idle Spark.
