There is an under hood sticker that displays that information and it might harm the motor if the timing is not correct.

Or a local smog inspection station will have that information at their fingertips. It will depend on the motor, 12 degrees plus or minus 2 degrees is the non Vtec and 16 plus or minus two for the vtec
