We just had a post on Timming, It really doesnt create more "HP" on a stock car setting. When I did it my car was at 14 degrees, and I advanced to 18 I felt it was more smoother throughout each gears when accelerating. Also found it gives you more travel for your gas (mpg). I didnt have a timming gun so I got mine done at the shop for 40 canadain. Not to shabby. If you have a timming gun and your confortable with how to use it theres a thread on how to adjust your timming here:

I recommend it, I'm sitting at 18 degrees right now, was at 15, I noticed quite a nice difference. Not earth-shattering but noticeable.

the gas milage is better and the acceleration is not as lagging, but torque steer is a minor problem, and i found that with a higher octane gasoline, the car drives better with 18degrees, may not for you, but mine does.
