The distributor neither knows nor cares what the engine's externals are.
The only meaningfull Q in my mind is, and who better to answer than you,
Mihnea:  Do any of the more aggressive ECU mods use a greater total advance
angle, full retard to full advance, than does the stock ECU?  If so, is any
such increase in the max advance angle over stock enough to possibly cause
sparking to an ajacent plug point?
