Do you REALLY need a timing GUN to check the timing?

A mechanic suggest a timing GUN if you want to install the timing CORRECTLY..

Do you really NEED IT if you want a PERFECT timing?

I read the Service Manual several time, but it never mention about TIMING GUN..

If I want to get a timing gun, what is the BEST ONE on the market?
And is it HARD to use?

Am a first timer in doing this... ANY suggest, comment, or guide.

Your car uses a hall sensor to detect crank revolutions and controlls timing via the ECU.

You can't set your static timing, or otherwise adjust it without kpro.

As DJCarbine has already mentioned, there really is no need for one at all on the RSX.

I bought a timing gun a couple months back to use on my Accord. Don't worry about the "best one" because you will not use it enough these days. I went a little over the top and bought one with a tach readout, etc.. just to make it easier on myself.

They are relatively easy to use provided you know which one is your #1 wire.
