It depends on what you did and what year. If its a vortec, and you didn't pull the distributor, all you have to do is make sure the marks on the timing gears are lined up and your good to go. The computer does the rest. Some times you have to reset the computer though. If its older, there's a wire under the pass side dash. You have to unplug it. Time the engine with a timing lite, and then plug it back in and the computer takes care of the rest. The wire should be brown and white with a single connector. (If you pulled the distributor on the vortec, you have to take it to a shop and have them put it on the computer).

There is no adjustment on the timing, It is controled by the computer. If you did not have the distributor out then there is no reason to worry about the timing, Unless the check engine light is on and you had it scanned with a engine scanner and it said that the timing was off. You will then need to hook scanner up to engine and go into the timing mode and move the distributor until the light goes out. Then tighten dist. and the computer will do the rest.
