I have a 1988 Subaru GL, 1.8 FI and want to know what the rpm needs to be set at to correctly set the timing to the 20 degrees.
This is not a turbo.

RE: timing
Ignition Timing (BTDC): 20°@700 rpm

Warm up engine.
Confirm that throttle sensor idle switch is "ON."
Connect Test Mode connector (green connector).
Hook up timing light, start engine and check timing.
If adjustment is needed, loosen 6mm distributor plate mounting bolts.
Turn distributor clockwise to advance timing and counterclockwise to retard timing.
When adjustment is complete, tighten bolts and recheck timing.
Turn off engine and disconnect Test Mode connector.
