When you need to retard your ignition timing 4 degrees how do you do it. (running a 75 shot of NOS) do you have to have a new ignition like a MSD DIS 8 which is adjustable

ignition timing is done by moving the distrubuter back and forth. cam timing is set with cam gears. ignition timing times when your spark plugs will spark and cam timing is to time when the intake exhaust valves are going to open and close for air.

move the distrubutor forward on the intake cam. if you want to retard like 4 degrees, you will need a timing gun and point it at you crank and see the marks. i'll be posting some pics and stuff on www. h o n d a net.org, so check it out if you want. btw, copy and paste and remove the spaces...

thanks for the help on the first question. I already new that cam timing and ignition timing were two different things I just needed help proving it to someone else. Does anyone know the answer to the timing on the i-vtec

Whoa, a new vtec k-series engine eh?? I know with the obd-2 and up u need an aftermarket retarder, becuase of the ecu resetting timing, I think. So that may be the case of your car too. That might or might not help you, because your timing adjusts per rpm right, or something like that??? Damn these new K motors!!!!!!:mad:
