Tthe distributor can only be installed one way, and with a piggyback or standalone EMS, the ignition timing can be adjusted.

Yeah unlike the other 90’s Hondas, our distributor after you install it correctly it does not matter how far forward or back it’s positioned, the ignition timing is set automatically by the Ecu. So if you’re re-installing, you don’t have to be careful or mark where it was last, just install and that’s it.

Not sure the ECU sets the timing automatically.

I'm pretty sure as wing states above that on 5th gens there is no adjustability on the dizzy, so you can't go wrong really.

On 4th gens they are adjustable and it needs setting with a timing light.
