How about the stock 2.5 V6? Does it benefit from slight advance of the timing from stock?

I just checked and adjusted my timing in preparation of a smog test and I found the timing to be too advanced so I dialed it back to 7 degrees and now the car seems a little less happy to rev. I think I'll be advancing again once it passes smog but do you have any suggestions for optimal timing for this engine?

Thanks and thanks, Joe, for the recent quick shipping of my parts....
