    Red face 2000 Civic Vti Oriel Distributor Retire/Advance?

    I just bought a 2000 Civic Vti Oriel which is petrol driven since day one.The thing i would like to ask is that should i retire or advance the distributor.Currently it's in the middle.Surely i want better fuel economy still i want a bit of go.What should i do?I can do this by myself as it's quite east.One just has to loose 2 bolts and adjust the setting.One more thing what is the factory setting?And why have they given such an adjustment.

    u cant do it without a timing light but still an old Wolf's theory is to advance the timing until u hear knock and retard a degree back ill leave it in the middle if it isnt missfiring or consuming fuel much - plus you have to degree the cam along that too

    I got it for 700,000.Car is in mint condition MASHALLAH.I saw your thread earlier.You should demand somewhere around 600,000.Btw you did a big mistake by converting meter lighting to LED!You shall never get the accurate reading!I had got my Civic 96 meter converted to LED.Since that day it never showed the accurate reading.I think i should spread out this awareness by creating a thread!

    Leave it to a professional. If you make mistake, you could end up detonating.
