Hey all,

Does anyone know what the exact ignition timing should be on a (92) turbo 900 S? I have an electronic [posh & professional :D] test lamp that i have borrowed from work so i can do it accurately but im not sure what it should be set to as the Hayne's manual is very vague on the subject :roll:

Thanks for the help

Jon

Yes from what i know 16 degrees btdc is standard, some people are running 22 on this forum with the power mods.

You got a Timing gun from work and you are not sure how to use it? what do you do at work then?;)

I never said I don't know how to use it :D Im a trainee mechanic so i'd b a bit worried if i couldn't use it! I checked my haynes' and the autodata book at work but found nothing so asked you guys...
