Re: ea timing

You have to ground out the computer (plugs in engine bay near booster) then start the car, you have 2 minutes to set the timing, if you take longer then stop engine and try again, when set, remove ground wire and start car, this is for base timing, the computer looks after the rest.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

"So long and thanks for all the fish!"
