Timing on a DIS?

Hey guys, here's a question. I have been putting my engine back together on my 92 2.3L with the DIS and was doing a couple of hop ups, I put on a cold air intake and a 95 header (magnaflow exhaust to follow soon) My question is can you bump up the timing a degree or two on these motors and if so how? I have been able to with my old Dizzy style motors but have never really messed with the DIS until now. any info would be great!

Thanks

Arin

the computer controls the timing, no adjustments can be made

That's what I was afraid of but that's ok.

Thanks for the reply!

You can do it through tuning, that is the only way.

You can manually advance the timing by moving the timing belt one or two teeth off from the marks, but it will cause rough running or preignition.

This changes cam timing!

I believe your '92 is sim to my '95, uses a crankshaft sensor (which is relatively unadjustable) to control both spark and fuel delivery.

Maybe an aftermarket ignition box MSD? Jacobs?

Yeah I am not going to do the cam timing. I would rather tune it than do that. I may go with a chip. but I am really leaning toward putting a 302 or 351 in it.

no chips, but module is offered. Wonder if the module is worth the $$$.? i've been eyeballing a performance module(jet) myself, but would like to know if the gain ( no sacrifice to MPG? ) is worth the $345

How about it. Anybody run a performance module on dual plug 2.3 sohc? MPG loss? Power?
Anybody run an air adjuster?ist
Anybody run em in a 5-Sp.?
