You could safely go with what you've described:
  • 14 initial
  • 20 mechanical (you will want to bring this in earlier, most likely- but is fine for first start-up)
  • 14 degrees of vacuum advance (might be a bit much)
The vacuum advance might need tuning once you start driving it. Just keep tabs on any surge at cruise or ping at tip in from cruise.
