The advanced timing looks like what Brain has me running. I would make dead sure your base timing is right on before changing anything though.

Whet you are setting your timing with the light, are you going into the spark tab, then to spark settings, then changing the "-10" to "10" like you are supposed to? Then change it back after you get done setting it.

Under the "advanced" tab, go down to "coolant related air density" and change the settings to this:
