there should be at least 2 timing marks on that aftermarket pulley, TDC and 16 BTDC....there there isn't...than ya, you're pretty much screwed, unless you switch it out for a pulley with marks, or you are doin it on a h22 b/c it uses marks on the flywheel.

just take off your aftermarket pulley and mark the timing marks the same as a stock pulley.. its not rocket science. hondas dont have to be to the exact degree.. i believe they allow 2-4 degree difference or something? 14-18 deg? I think thats what I read.. or maybe it was 14-16, i foget. But when you mark the marks, try to be as precise as possible

don't expect much of a gain by simply advancing the timing via the distributor, the power is made by tuning the ecu and fuel/ignition maps on it, and really tuning the ignition should be saved for when ur on a dyno.
