SBC Timing recomendations

Hey Guys. I just fired my motor today for the first time and was hoping to get some timing recomendations. Motor runs really well. Right know I have my initial set at about 12 degrees with the vacuum advance plugged. I'm all in at around 3000RPM at about 35 degrees. I think I could do with some more intial but I'm really not sure. See motor specs below and send some input my way.
If I have missed any info please let me know. Thanks in advance. (No pun inteded)
