I think you are ok as is. 15 BTDC is all you need to check. The PCM (computer controls total spark advance). If you had that much advance, you would have bad spark knock and melted pistons by now. Timing belt and cam timing is ok too. Yes, this is a freewheeling engine in Villgaer (sister van) and Quest at the request of Ford. Pathfinder & Maxima not freewheeling.
