Hook up just like the old unit -- piece of cake.

I set my timing at 23 degrees.  It does depend on many things like 
altitude, ignition system, etc.  It will likely be less than the stock 24 
but you should try to get as much as you can w/out knocking.  We have 
extreme weather here (hot summer, cold winter) and at 23 degrees it gives 
just a hint of knock when over 100 degrees and lugging and then flooring it 
... so I don't do that :-)  At 22 degrees it never knocked.
