adding timing

I have an edge evo that lets you advance the timing on the custom program. How much is it safe to advance? I have an AFE stage II intake and AFE 4" straight pipe exhaust. Tha truck is mostly a tow rig so I'm looking for performance in the hills not at the top end. Keep on truckin'.

leave it to the guys who get paid for it. messing with timing is unforgiving if you mess up.

That's about what I figured too. Luckily it lets you add a quarter degree at a time and I stopped at one quarter to see what happened. WOT pulling the trailer seemed to burn more fuel equaling less black cloud so I'll quit while I'm ahead. Thanks
