Hello, my name is Ben. If you go that far, you will most likely create a "no start" condition. You can try 8-10 degrees at the most. Be sure to take your wrenches with you on your test drive, since too much advance will keep the engine from re-starting. Too much advance can also cause backfires, which can lead to other problems.
