If it is in a race car just take it to a track and make a couple of passes with 36 degrees and bump it up and make another couple and the time slip will tell you if it is making more power. Actually the mph will tell you. Nobody can tell you if the engine will want more timing and nobody can feel the small difference in the seat of their pants. The only way to know is to take it too the track and get time slips.
