79 T/A w/Olds 403

hi guys, i just want to say thanks alot for all the help and advice, if it wasnt for this site i wouldnt be where im at... just have a few more questions..heres what i've done so far,
Its a olds 403 hooked up to a th350 w/stock converter..
#7 olds heads w/ 62cc combustion chambers
comp cam Kit-part # CL42-229-4 advertised 268-268
edelbrock 3711 performer intake
hooker competition headers
flowmaster header back 2.5" exhaust
installed 3.08 rear end
stock qaud jet carb
stock pistons, rods, and crank

so here are my questions..what am i looking at for compression ratio? what should i set my timing advance to in degrees to get the most power from these combos? should i run stock plugs or a colder set? and would it be safe to run nitrous in this motor? or would it shatter the rods?

thanks alot guys...very much appreciated...but if nothing else could you please help me with the timing?? the book says to set it at 20 degrees btdc at 1100 rpm?? is this where i should set it or should i go a bit more? thanks alot again..
