Yes. You'll need to pull the spout connector off, set the timing and then hook the spout back up. It is the 2 wire connector at the distributor.
Depending on your mods and motor, the timing will vary. 12-14 is a good baseline. If I were you, I'd look up EagleAutoSports here and ask him. He is one of the mods and has a wealth of information floating around in his head.:hihi:

:happyhapp Hey now...


You disconnect the spout connector that's inline the harness that leads to the distributor. Just unplug it. Then adjust the timing, some cars like upwards of 18, some don't like anything over 10. Try 13-14 degrees and if you hear any rattling or noise that sounds like rocks in a coffee can, back the timing down a degree at the time till it goes away, then plug the spout back in.

Mods do make the difference. I'm running almost 18 degrees right now with no detonation. I will have to back down it down though due to the installation of turbos.
