I think I'll be advancing again once it passes smog but do you have any suggestions for optimal timing for this engine?
Stock advance on the 2.5 Milano is 2 degrees, not 7. Look for the mark on the pulley. If you set it to 7 you won't pass the smog timing check (assuming they do it.)

My old Milano 2.5 was definitely a bit more peppy at 7 static. I didn't go higher than that as I didn't want to risk pinging.
