probably around 14 degrees i would start at ten though and work your way up just in case but with your mods around 14 is a safe bet especially if your running a higher octane gas

Some cars, can take upwards of 18, some don't like more than 10. Try 14 and see how it does, if you hear rattling, back it down a degree at the time till it stops.
