Cam Angle Tuning

Going to tune the Camaro soon. I have a question for tuners : What is the maximum safe intake cam angle on a completely stock 2018 SS 6M? I am looking at the stock map as received and the maximum cam angle that GM is running at WOT is 10 degrees. On some of the tables they run as much as 29 degrees at part throttle. I know very little about these motors and I would appreciate a little education on this topic. I have attached a screen shot of the WOT cam map.Thanks.
(using EFI Live, though most of the guys on this forum appear to prefer HPT)

the retard in cruise areas acts as EGR.
For wot Id start by comparing to the vette and take the best from each.

My concern is P to V and V to V clearance. I would prefer not to destroy the motor on the dyno.

So I can go ahead and run 60 degrees intake cam advance from idle to red line? Looking at the various maps, it looks like GM tuned up to 30 degrees of cam advance. The WOT map goes from zero at idle to 10 degrees at red line. Are there any gains to be had by ramping the cam up to 15 degrees near red line for instance? Going to dyno tune this thing in about two weeks. Any help appreciated.
