I'm running a re-curved OEM dizzy with Pertronix. I had it setup to be "all-in" by 3100. It has 23 deg built in with a total of 37. I have run as much as 16 initial when dynoed. My CR is 10.6 with no signs of pinging. My rig ((334) was last dynoed at 392 RWHP at 6100, with 400 RWTQ @ 4400. As far as pinging goes, it's going to depend on your dynamic CR (influenced by the cam events). Each engine will be different as to what it's going to like, to run it's best. I will say, have run as much as 40 degrees total, with great response from the engine.
Again, each engine is different as to how it responds.
With that being a new engine, you won't really know what it likes until you get it on the street and or the track and Dyno.
Hope this helps a little.
