SPOUT connector / Timing

I was adjusting my timing last weekend. When I got done, it slipped my mind and I forgot to plug the spout connector back in. When I realized it, I went to look for it and couldn't find it.

1) Will I damage anything by driving the car without the spout connector in there? I get my new one on Thursday. Ordered it online.

2) I was told that advancing the timing will get more performance out of the car. What do you guys have your timing set at?

Thanks in advance for the replies.

@1 I honestly don't know...

@2 yes advancing the timing will squeeze some power out, but you'll have to run higher octane gas to prevent detonation.
mine was advance a couple degrees to high and was detonating, had to pull some, but now its set for nitrous.

I only pump 91 octane gas at chevron.
How advanced did you have yours that it was detonating?

Without the spout in your EEC can not control the timing as the rpm raise. you're base timing is set and that's all you get
