is there any way to adjust the timing with out a tuner?

i don't want to buy one
then i suggest you dont advance your timing. any other way is potentially harmful to the engine.
actually YES there is
you can advance the timing on your cam or retard it

so the answer is YES it is possible to ADJUST timing without a tuner
and if it pings/detonate rip it apart and star again? sounds like a PITA not to mention how would u know how much you have adjusted it?
well first off its MUCH MUCH MUCH more common then using a tuner. infact any v8 motor you buy you will have that option
any engine you rebuild you have to adjust timing!
its VERY easy if you know what to do and VERY easy not to screw up
and ask any carb setup guy how he adjust his timing. aside from saying his distributor he'll say a cam. you say well why not a tuner...him-->:confused:umm what?
yes i know we're not carb'd but your making it seem like my idea is rediculous and its more benifical then a tuner
and REQUIRED with any CAM Install
and there is are timing marks and about scale that reads -10 to 0 to +10
its as easy as turning a wrench
im not saying ur idea is ridiculous im saying its not a very safe way for a person to do it unless he has experience in the subject which buy the OP its clear he does not. its also not as simple as a tuner like we all agree.
actually with a cam its the ONLY idea:rolleyes:

but i guess we could just throw in a cam and only adjust timing with the tuner! that'll work super great?

hmm looks like false information a little in my eyes
dude obviously if your changing your cam you set up accordingly, Like i said before he just wants to adjust the timing. as far as we all know there isnt a cam swap. like i said for his situation a tuner is a good idea the other methods are not practicle for him and or dangerous to his motor.
guess i should have adjusted my cam for my +3 degrees of timing on my stock cam rather then using my tuner :rolleyes:
well in that case putting a tuner in someones hands that doesnt know what -6 spark means or +9 they might say oh hey 9hp!
hmm i can put this many way
i think adjusting a cam is pie
so is playing with a tuner
but the question was if there was a way to do it without and tuner none the less the question wasnt answered correctly and im pretty sure you went back in edited your post too

awww is itschristorres8 being right about a tranny thread getting to you now:no
no post was edited. OMZ was the first to say yes it was possible. No your not getting to me. not every one is such the pro at cam tuning like torres is so like i stated before tuner is his best option. unless he has the know how for the other 2 methods and wants to do it. NO i wouldnt know adjust timing via cam but if i looked into it who are you to say i couldnt?
either way jug face it
THE QUESTION wasnt answered correctly and you did NOTHING to say against it
face it just like the thread you moved I AM RIGHT

and go ahead and come back with the smartass
yea itschristorres8 is always right blah blah
you know what i'll say
thank you. everyone seems to be saying the same thing
good thing you got 3 days to cool off. Like i said OMZ answered it correctly first stop acting like your king **** of turd island. i saw nothing wrong with the answers. sorry i couldnt argue with you last night to make u feel like mr big shot i went out with the girlfriend k thx bye
there is indeed a way to adjust your timing without a tuner.

If you don't know what you are doing I would advise against it.
watch out HMUSN, Torres will come be a bitch to you too because ur saying a tuner is a better choice :lol
wow nice does this means torres is temporarly banned or what? since jugg said he has 3 days to cool off?

i was thru a damn deal with him and i cant send pm's to torres :(
and wow i'm not too much in this forum like b4 when i made 50 post daily hehe.. but wow this has gotten umm strange? like ppl really jump to others opinions or w.e I'm even afraid of suggesting something w.o som1 jumping on me.. geez its a forum... whats a forum?

isnt a forum a place to make questions, get advices and state opinions.. freely...?

like damn guys I see this section is like getting all ****ed up I think its the only section that it's like this. The V6 section is also getting to be like another clubhouse.. yes i used to go off topic but i had my limits. When i post i dont make 10 threads about different questions in one day. If i wanna ask something i will made like 20 questions in one single thread so that way i dont clutter the section. I'm seing "X" making a thread about CAI then he starts another one about exhaust after that he starts another one about engine upgrades. Then why not make only 1 thread with all your doubts in it?

also if you see a thread related to your doubt read it.. i mean if u r going t ask lets say about a CAI and you see a thread about CAI then read it.. why start another one? if theres one already made that COULD answer your questions. Also why dont you ppl read the damn stickies? it isnt hard. also navigate away from this damn section a few times or at least once a week.. some ppl here dont know we even have a clubhouse to talk all the **** we want and also a underground section to talk about ... well things..

The reason the general tech section is like empty is because ppl dont get out of their damn sections if your a V6 owner then why dont you explore the V8 section and general tech section.. I gurantee you will learn a lot more if you explore all the sections and you will not get that bored.

So plz ppl instead of ****ing up this great forum help it out.. what makes a forum good isnt only the mods and administrators its all the ppl who joined it... have you gotten on other forums? where ppl really jump on your ideas and you feel like **** and leave because everyone there is an asshole.. well i dont want anything like that to happen here.. yes we got dumb ppl and they ask abou everything like a lil kid that u give em a rason and they continue askig "why?".. like 20 times so?.. ignore em instead of jumping on them...

Thats all i got to say for now damn.. i never write so much!..
he will be back on the 12th also you can get in contact on aim
