Honda B16a : Offset Timing & Delay

Recommended Posts

Calibrating the Triggers (Setting Base Timing) on a B16a 

This what I get from the default file for Gen 6 Honda - are these good starting values?

Offset = -85 degree BTDC (seems a bit extreme?)

Delay = 0 microseconds

As the trigger mode is generic and covers a huge range of applications the offset is often very far away from 0.

You will just need to adjust on the car to make the timing correct.

This is what the ignition delay number is for. This corrects for the retard in timing as the RPM increases.

If you are using the Honda igniter make sure you have set the dwell edge correctly as it is opposite to most applications.

Ok thanks. The "retard as RPM increase" - how much is that normally? 2 degress?

Just want to understand more.

Is that steady higher rom fixed at say 5000 rpm

or 

As you blip the throttle 3000 - 5000 rpm - retard happens as the engine as throttle is blipped - and is this more to timing belt flex or a delay in the electronics in the ECU
