au 5litre timing procedure wanted

Can anyone give me the terminals that have to be bridged.
I know it is the STI & GND terminals but what position are they in.

As you look at the port, Its the very first one from the left, and the one directly beneath it.

I didn't think you could adjust the timing on the AU 5litre?

Yes. You set the base timing and then the EEC takes over from there.

Thanks for the reply,
I am assuming you mean the top left terminal & the one below.

In line with what Dodgie said... I understand you can't change the timing on an AU unless you chip it. They don't have a dizzy - they have coil pack. There is a cam sensor whare the dizzy used to be.

Re: au 5litre timing procedure wanted

you can alter the timing in the AU V8. the base timing is 30 +- 2 degrees
Which is the referece point for the ECU, if you adjust the base, the computer still assumes the 30 degree setting but the actuals will be
advanced or retarded depending on where you have set. From what I have heard an extra 2 degrees advance can make a fair difference. Have to be careful with pinging. & may have to run it on PULP depending on the situation.

Re: au 5litre timing procedure wanted

Wouldnt advancing the timing be the same on an I6? Simply twisting the dizzy?

So how do you physically do this?
