Spout connector effects timing

Make sure you remove the spout connector before setting timing!!! That spout connector is pretty hard to locate on the wiring harness, Its just a little plug taped into the wiring along the left hand side by the plug where you check your codes.

If you change the timing without removing that little plug you might as well be doing nothing at all.

Is there two of those connectors to unplug or just one? I just found one.

If you leave the SPOUT connector off the computer won't advance the timing as you drive. Needless to say, less power, lower mileage, and less money because of the aforementioned.

The SPOUT connector is the gray thing at the end of the plug. All it does is jump the two wires in that connector together.
