The timing is not adjustable at all. Turning the distributor controls the synchronization of the rotor with the coil and the injectors with the spark. It requires the use of a professional scan tool to observe the "Cam Offset" PID and adjust it to "0".
You will have to get it close first to be able to get it started.

The site seems to have disabled the ability to link an image and I doubt this one will be readable here but I'll upload it anyway

Copy the link in the first answer, minus the [IMG] at both ends and paste it into your browser. When you get there, click on it and it will enlarge.
