gains w/timing adjuster N/A and w/NOS?

I have seen LOTS of people on here recommend a Steeda timing adjuster as one of the first mods that should be done on our cars. My question is as follows: Realistically what can it do for a car N/A? Is there a clear SOP gain? Secondly, I now have a NOS 5171 on my car. I've heard many say that with a 150-shot and under, stock timing is fine. However, would changing timing help when using the juice? I am considering scoring a T/A but am honestly looking for a clear SOP gain both with the nitrous and especially N/A, as 99% of my driving/street racing will be without the nitrous. What do you guys think and what are your experiences using a T/A in both situations?

I don't have a Steeda T/A, but I think you SHOULDNT see any gains when on the spray with one. Reason being is because you shouldnt advance your timing while you're spraying. You'd be more likely to detonate and blow something. The T/A is suited best for n/a applications or decreasing your timing in non n/a situations. I could be wrong here, so someone else chime in.

Its not about seeing gains ... its going to allow you to use more n20 .. more safely.. thats the big advantage of it with n20....

Some dynos n/a usually at 15deg usually see plus minus 3-6 something like that...

So when on the juice the T/A is more of a safety mod and N/A more of a performance mod? Does it make a SOP gain at least N/A or is it like pulleys in that you really don't notice much?
