Theres no advance wire on that engine!!! theres a hash mark on the back of the intake and one on the distrbutor shaft you set the distrib with the has mark and yes!! the ecm! will always reset the timing that is what is does but if it's pinging or knocking then change the ignition module cause the dwell side of it is out of range!

I need torque specs for the body mount bolts on a 08 gmc sierra sle z71

Call your local Chevy/ GMC dealer. A competent service manager should be able to look up that spec. In a New York Minute. If he's unable or unwilling to help you find another dealer; one with customer satisfaction as his primary goal. ALL those specs. Are included in the shop manual.
