    You would have to swap a 1gcas in and most likely get ecmlink to invert the signal. Otherwise no, not on a 97+ model year. Its all ECU adjusted with the crank and cam angle sensors. You realy shouldnt be off. The 95-96 had the firewall ground for some way to check it but idk about that.

    How far is it off?

    Recheck it with this method:
    To get the true timing is to unplug the injectors and have someone turn the car over while you watch the timing light/crank mark. Cranking over is the only time the ECU locks timing at 5deg on our years. While running its always adjusting and this could be why you think its off. Dont fry your starter though!
