Advancing the cam timing on a 1996 Dodge Dakota 2.5

Hey y'all, I'm new to this site. I've read enough to know that this is the best
place to get a response based on experience.
I've got a 1996 Dakota with a 2.5 that's my daily driver. MPG is 21-22, and
25-26 on trips. Low-end power is weak, but seems to really "turn on" above
about 3500. I don't like to wind it up just to get decent acceleration, so I've
decided to advance the cam timing for more low-end power. The cam sensor
is built in the distributor, so the bracket holding it will have to be modified to
let me put the cam sensor back in time.
Well, what do you guys think? Will it work, or am I barking up the wrong tree? Thanks in advance for advice, criticism or whatever you offer.
