Vacuum retard is gone above the transmission in nuetral 1500 rpm throttle position anyway so you won't hurt anything.
Vacuum advance will work the same and so will boost retard.

FWIW, I took a picture of my distributor slot area today to give an idea where the stud is positioned in it after lengthening the slot for more advance and all the other stuff I've done to it.
Thats about how much my distributor is turned with a stock slot. I don't have a TL with the advance knob on it but sounds like I should. I'll do some math and place a mark where 10* more than where I am now should be and I'll bet it's past that by a few deg. I'll unplug and try it like that. Car sure runs a lot better than before.
