Timing on Ga16de

Yeah, That is the stock crank marking set-up.
Damn, they could have made it easier to see the damn pulley.
All the flashing and watershields etc....

My question is I put an Unorthodox Crank Pulley on my 1.6 97' 200sx and
I cannot find an explanation for the marks on their website.
I was wondering if anyone who has this pulley could speak up and
let me know.
I had my crank pulley installed by someone else and they set it to stock 8-10 Btdc. When I advanced it I put it on the next mark (appears to be a deeper cut on this mark) I'm thinking it's 15BTDC but I'm not "positive". The procedure was simple enough once I figured out I wasn't disconecting the TPS. (for some reason the IACC valve connector looked right, oh how wrong I was) anyway, that said, I just wanna be sure. I think the last mark is 20BTDC. It was on 20 for a day, Strange thing is I didn't hear any "pinging" or knock or anything unusuall? Maybe the computer just retards it before it happens. Anyway I wanna set it on like 16-17BTDC and run that for a while.
Right now it runs fine, feels stronger and more brisk under WOT especially from 4000-7000rpm. Thanks to anyone out there with that crank info......

UR marks are the same as the factory pulley. From the left side it starts at -5 degrees and goes up in 5 degree incriments from there.

Almost the same....
Ok that is a total of six marks right?
I thought the stock had 5
my UR pulley has six, so the sixth must be 20 following the above....
-5,0,5,10,15,20

Right?

Also, I have over-advanced it accidentally once to 20 and haven't heard knocking or "pinging" or anything weird. If it doesn't ping is it just being retarded by the ECU or is my car just weird?
Anyone heard a 1.6 ping yet?
I can't "make it" ping, I know I don't want it to ping all the time but that's the
"edge" of performance and I just can't find it!
Damn computer controlled cars....
