adjusting the ignition timing on a 1999 Civic LX

Hi, is there a special procedure for adjusting the timing on a 1999 Civic LX? I just hook up the timing light and look for the markings on the belt pulley, I adjusted it to the center marking. Is it O.K or should I look for some plug to short or something else? I wonder because timing, according to what I saw, was way retarded. I just bought the car and felt like it is missing a lot of power, my 1990 Accord LX is like a sports car against the Civic. After I adjusted the timing it feels better but not good enough.
Did I do O.K. or should I recheck and follow a special procedure?
