With your compression, you'll need 100 octane fuel, more likely 102 or higher. Base timing should be about 6 to 8 degrees BTDC. Idle in nuetral should be about 1000 rpm, maybe a shade less. If you're running 92 octane, you'll need to run your timing about 10-15 degrees retarded---about 5-10 degrees ATDC or maybe TDC (0 degrees), and it'll be a dog.
