Best alignment numbers

After installing my chassis stiffener my alignment changed. This is for the steering geometry gurus....
Anybody have any input on the best toe/caster/camber numbers?

I have a CarDisc and looked over the factory specs, I just thought maybe someone had possibly played with different numbers and came up with a setup that may be an improvement, but maybe Alfa had it dialed all along....who can mess with perfection? Thanks again for the input. Off to the alignment shop tomorrow with factory settings, in case they don't have them....

We've found that, depending on your tire size and/or driving style, you may want more negative camber and more castor than the factory settings. Of course the ability to dial in more negative camber depends on having adjustable upper control arms in place, which a large majority of 105/115 cars do at this point.

Here's a chart with both factory and modified suspension settings:
