4kq - advancing timing

Has anyone played around with advancing the timing on their 4kq?  Since I'm
getting a Stebro exhaust, I'm looking to tweak all the power I can get out
of my engine.  Here's what Ned Ritchie from Intended Acceleration says (see
link below):

A tip that Ned suggested was advancing the timing on the K Jetronic cars to
12 degrees at idle.  This gives about 10 hp on a stock engine.  If the
engine pings under load, you will have to back it off.  For Motronic cars,
you'll have to change the chip to advance the timing.  High octane fuel
should be used when doing this.
