ign timing adjustment

Hey guys, just want to make sure I am doing this right, since this is a critical adjustment for the turbo. I have a stock 87 930 timing seems a bit off. with a warm engine I checked it at 4000 rpm on the timing light, I have heard the guage in the car is not as accurate. I disconnected and plugged with golf tees both distributer vacuum lines. Left one is advance and right is retard. I assume I am looking at the 26 deg timing mark and it appears to be slightly retarded from the index. Am I checking this correctly? Also from my reading for adjusting basic spec you need to go timing, CO, then idle, correct? Sorry guys I don't have any kind of shop manual for this car, did everyone here buy the expensive shop manual from Porsche, or is there another alternative? Thank you, any help is appreciated.
