Anyone know of one?

I can't find a guage to show a composite of KR and SA.... I've never even heard of one before.

You need a scan tool to check timing on a pcm controled engine like ours.
With that said you could use an osciliscope and calculate the timing but I'm not going there.

Dam, they should make one of those and a fuel trim gauge too. Then i'd be set.
The only scan tool i can get my hands on is at my friends shop and it closes at 5 so it'* just a PITA.
When i stop being cheap, i guess i'll go and buy one.
Osciliscope, fun in physics lab but not in an engine bay.
I dunno how to do that.
