That's a distributor used for racing so the distributor itself contains no mechanical or vacuum advance capabilities. If you want an ignition "curve", you will need an ignition box that is programmable. It's not unusual for the timing to be set to the max power setting and then an ignition timing retard is used to crank it up.
