loosen the distributor and rotate clockwise. its strongly recommended you use a timing light though, just so you don't advance so far you enduce ping.

look at the engine, it is on the right, where the plug wires are linked to.
There are 2 bolts under the distributor that u must loose.
After that rotate the distributor and tight the bolts and u're done! wink.gif wink.gif wink.gif

If you advance the timing do you have to use higher octane fuel?

depending on how far you advance. you should be okay up to 14 degrees. personally I would run high octane over 12 but mb thats just me, don't want to get ping ya know.

When you rotate your distributor, I believe you rotate to the right. I would definately use higher octane. After I advanced my timing, I ran regular and is ran like **** and my engine started to knock. After I put in higher octance, the car ran better.
