Quite a large displacement increase what ECU you running it on? Hows the B16 head cope with that bottom end?

Timing can have quite a big effect on performance.

A little bit of advance can't be bad. Tweak it slowly and see how you get on. As soon as the engine starts running badly it's time to back it off a little. A lot depends where you want the power to end up.
