Advance Or Retard Ignition Timing With Knock Sensors

I have no distributor. I would like to advance my ignition timing. I read that the ECU will advance the spark until it detects knock, then it will retard a degree.

Stock Small Block Chevy Total Timing

1972 Chevelle 350, Freshly rebuilt engine... completely. However, just stock parts. No performance parts in there at all except exhaust and simple bolt ons.
