    You need to short out the left hand side pins on the diagnostic connector.
    Behind the fuse panel cover there's a plug with 20 or so pins. Join the left hand side top pin to the left hand side bottom pin with a small alligator clip or something to get the car running in base timing mode.
    Then it's just a matter of using your timing light and loosening the dizzy bolt to adjust if necessary.

    WTF?

    Is this necessary when tuning an EF as well??

    Thanks

    The EF doesn't have a distributor, so I don't know. I've only had to adjust the timing on ELs
