Correct , the best thing to do is get them close with the tools for TDC then use a compression gauge to dial them in closer till you can get to a dyno

Do a compression test , then move one gear 1 mark , if compression goes up go another mark till compression stops going up by moving the gear , if you go Adv. say and get no gain in compression then go the other way , when done with that gear go to the other and do the same thing , this will get you CLOSE but you need to adjust the gears on a dyno or you may leave some power behind
