Dear Oppo: Plz teach me timing/ignition

I've gone totally mad and am working on an E85 conversion. Don't try to stop me; it's already too late. I'm running about 18% total ethanol content right now and I must HAVE MORE. MORE CAR BOOZE!

That being said, in order to take advantage of my new power source I need to do some ignition upgrades. I'm going to jump a service connector and advance the timing on my CR-V via the distributor cap, but after that I'm totally at a loss.

Freaking ignition modifications, how do they work?

Next up: Getting a junkyard turbo and figuring out how to give it pitiful boost.
