Base timing questions

Recommended Posts


without using a timing light, can you see what your actual base timing is using the software ?


I need to check my base timing, but I came across the runtime value page (f12), click the “ignition” tab and it shows “ign angle (BTDC)”  13.0


is this correct or am I way off in thinking this

The goal of using a timing light is to confirm what the software think is for example is 10°, is actually 10 physical degrees on your engine. You can put whatever value you want as base timing, the end goal is that it matches your engine spark timing. 

No skips possible without timing light
