I am an old school back yard mechanic so not really up-to-date with the new gizmo. I have a timing light and want to check the timing of the 1ZZ. What do I need to do? Would appreciate some guidance on this.

OK. I haven't taken it to the smog test yet but just want to make sure it is ship-shaped. Is there anything I can do to make sure it passes?

If you have the ability to check the Fuel Trims.. ( Long Ones ) make sure they are within 5 of each other..

If the Trims are wider than 5 apart, then LIKELY it's a fuel injector problem..

Mine is good Compression.. Old Plugs, old O2 Sensors, Good Fuel Injectors..

I Passed..

In most cases if they do hook up to the ODB2 port it will pass as long as you don't have a check engine light. If they smog test it then it will most probably pass because the brain of the car can in most cases measure to see if the catalyst is below efficiency and though a check engine light.

So the bottom line is you will most likely pass your emissions.
