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.
