I looked last night and couldn't nail it down. The computer sets the timing, but I don't know where you should start.

Call/stop by a local dealership or service shop and ask someone who might know.

Just for fun, might goto the local parts store and look in a service manual. If I'm out later (and I will be) I'll stop and look at some service manuals.

I looked at a 1982-1992 Haynes Camaro manual and the darn thing said to check manufacturer's specs.. WTH would I buy a manual if it didn't have important specs?

Normal operating temperature.

Disconnect SET TIMING connector (tan/black wire) located in harness close to distributor. DO NOT disconnect 4 wire connector at distributor.
Connect timing light and adjust as necessary by loosening hold down bolt and rotating distributor. Tighten hold down and recheck the timing. Stop the engine and connect SET TIMING connector. Clear ECM trouble code by disconnecting ECM power source.
