could the mechanical timing affect the amount of time in which it takes the car to reach operating temp. and then also cause it to run about 10* hotter then normal at idle but not overheat?there are also some driveability issues, revs and idles fine but under load it has almost feels like its bogging and is choppy. this is on a fresh built bottom end and fresh head. put the motor in time on a engine stand and it all timing marks were lined up.base timing is currently set at 16*. p28 ecu running d16y8, 0 cam timing currenly.

Mechanical timing can only be off one full tooth.( if you have the correct cam gear, if you have the wrong gear and it can be off a half of tooth) its either timmed correctly or one tooth (or half if incorrect gear is used) advanced or one tooth ( or half if wrong gear is used) retard. You would notice a whole or half tooth off.

Your talking ignition timing. It should be 12* if using a y8 head ( or y5 ( any head with quench pads))

Its not the cam but the combustion chamber that wants the less ignition timing
