Is increasing the Ignition timing really worth it? Does it give a noticible difference in power or response? :confused: I have a 3VZ-FE with Cai and Auto Tranny.

Any tips?

timing light/or vacuum, by losening a bolt and turning the dizzy.

i think it's electronically adjusted as you drive, but needs a base to start from, or im just thinking of a different car...

my distributor cant be turned, or at least last time i had it off i didnt notice any way for it to be turned because of the bolt that holds it in place isnt slotted.
