You need to get a timing advance light that has a knob or display were you can input the desired timing and align it with the 0° timing mark.
That depends on the kind of distributor that is in the car. This being a 1996, there is a fair chance that it has the non-adjustable variant. It has just one position where the screws can be tightened. In which case the ignition timing is controlled by the computer (ECU)...but the pcm controls the timing so just as long as you didnt change anything in the engine you should not need to time it.
