I have a 2001 Sentra SE.
Has anyone advanced the timing to 17 degrees,
without changing the ECU?
Did you notice better acceleration?

you don't need another ECU to advance your timing. you do, however, need to follow the instructions on SE-R.net. yes, you will notice a better response and acceleration with the advancement.

There are also very good instructions on the Technical Articles page of B15Sentra.net. Yes- the acceleartion is better. Great "bangfor the buck" mod.

I keep the RPMs below 4000.
Will this help that type of driving?

Thanks,

The instructions on SE-R.net are designed for a Classic. Go to my web site and click on the "timing" in the table of contents. Addy is in my sig

LET THAT SR20 SCREAM! i'm sure other members will correct me if i'm wrong, but it is best to vary your rpms. also the ecu memorizes the "way" you drive. if you drive like gramma and all of a sudden become andretti, the car would be less "prepared". then again, if you drive like me, you'll fill up on gas every week!
