On a 95-99 SR20DE Sentra /200SX

you have to put the car into timing mode:

-unplug the TPS
-Rev up to 3k about three or four times
-Put a timing light on the crank pulley and check your marks (every car is different with there timing marks)
-To advance to retard timing you have to loosing the bolts on the distributor and move the distributor shaft to the proper setting to adjust timing (Car has to be running and it may run rough because the TPS is unplugged this is normal)
-Then recheck timing with timing light/gun and tighten the distributor shaft.

Remember - If you advance your timing to run higher octane fuel to aviod detonation.
