Good question, I too have this same issue with a 1999 crew cab (5.7L vortec) I need to set the timing and everytime I do it manually the computer over rides my settings. I have heard about this mysterious timing wire that needs to be disconnected to set the timing and then reconnected once the timing is set and the computer can record the new setting. The Brown/black wire has been scene under the passenger side carpet, behind the glove box and next to the relay center. Unfortunately, This 1999 doesn't seem to be the norm. Good Luck

The timing is electronic controlled. You MUST have an OBDII engine scanner to set the timing to specs. Timing light will not work.

You can not use a timing light to set the timing on that year engine. The timing is computer controlled and it requires a engine scanner to set the timing.
Just set timing for 4 deg BTDC on my 69 runs great.
That requires some one that has an OBD2 engine scanner and KNOWS how to use it. The timing is electronic controlled. You can set the base timing by ear.
The only way to set the timing is with a OBDII engine scanner. You CANNOT use a timing light. The timing is computor controlled.
The Chevy 350 does not have a timing belt, It has a timing chain. If you are wanting to know where to set the timing, then I need to know the year of the engine. Thay are all different.
