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


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
