Adjusting ignition timing

Can you adjust ignition timing at all with the 5.9 by moving the distributer?

no, that will change the injector timing (fuel sync). Ignition timing can only be changed by reprogramming the PCM

theres an old trick of moving the crank position sensor to advance the timing a little bit. You just have to redrill the holes on the sensor so it tiggers sooner in rotation
