Perhaps there's some kind of misunderstanding here. Even without TDI Graph being available on this ECU at the moment, VCDS still gives you exactly the same data that the VW factory scan tool does, which you can use in the manner prescribed by the VW factory repair manual for these engines to check the timing.
