Default Sprortster Softail 1200 with Edelbrock NOS

I just finished my 2000 XL with softail frame and Edelbrock nitrous oxide kit.
Engine specs:
- Wiseco 10.5:1 ceramic coated pistons,
- HP560 cams
- stock Buell XB heads with improved ports and valve seats,
- 2into1 Supertrapp Supermegs exhaust (open end cap and 20 discs),
- Mikuni HSR45 and Screamin Eagle manifold,
- Ultima ignition module and single fire coil

I wonder if this kit needs any ignition's timing retard function in it's basic setup.

Any one have experience with this kit?
I made an option to the wiring system that allows me to send "retard" signal to the ignition module while NOS is activated. I just wanna know if it's needed with +30 HP setup.

Where’d you get a softail frame for a Sportster? I have a 1999 Sportster that is supposed to be my project bike when I get around to making room in the garage. Thought a softail frame would be cool but couldn’t find anything online. Maybe I’m just not looking in the right place.

You could just try it without spark retard, but I have a feeling that it might be a very expensive test.

It's good to take some timing out.
30 HP NOS hit to a 1200 cc bike is like a 150 HP hit to a 5.7 L car engine.

Thanks for the comments.
This kit's instruction does not say anything about timing that needs to be adjusted.
However I will try it with and without taking timing out while I will be testing it on dyno.
First I need to break the engine in properly.

It's already done, plus the honing is done on the loose side (.0025")
And the pistons are ceramic coated, so I should be fine with it.

Is that Swain’s gold coat on the tops and PC-9 on the skirts?

I didn’t know Wisco offered that coating, or did you send them out?
