Yes, have it pointed to where the #1 wire terminal is in the cap. After that you will have to have a diagnostic scanner to be able to set it where the camshaft position sensor is in the correct location. That is the only way you can "time" this engine. There is no other way to do this than with a diagnostic scanner (not a code reader).
