Default Adjusting your WOT Timing Based on Your Spark Plugs

This site is the best I've found. If you are a current customer and would like to go for max power without access to a dyno, please contact me and we can proceed by tuning off he spark plugs.

Wow. That is a new concept I have never heard of before. Do you find that all the plugs show the same charachteristics? Can a difference in the charachteristics between plugs be an early indicator of compression issues in that chamber?

The best test for compression is a compression or leak down test. You can examine each plug to be 100% sure, or just pull the #5 and assume they are all running the same. This is old school tech. This is how they tuned cars before they had dynos.
