Which engine do you have? That bushing caused a lot of unstable ignition timing on the V-8 engines.
What you're asking is not critical. For the sake of making the spark plug wires reach and look pretty it is customary to have the rotor tip pointing to the number 1 cylinder when it's on top dead center on the compression stroke. If the gear is off by one or two teeth you can just turn the distributor a little to match it. If it's more than that you can move every plug wire one spot in the cap, otherwise you can end up with the vacuum advance unit, (I don't think a '93 has that any more), hitting the firewall.
If your engine uses a crankshaft position sensor, that is what sets the ignition timing. The distributor just sends the spark to the right cylinder. The camshaft position sensor in the distributor just synchronizes the injector timing. You'll never notice a change when you turn the distributor.
