My experiences is that Volvos redblocks are not very good to responding cam timing changes.
I had a r-sport turbo ic 244 in early 2000's and i put a cam gear to it, i tried to advance it but i didn't notice anything in butt dyno. I try first 6degrees then 9 and nothing happened.

Unfortunately this car only had about 200hp, so if it was more powerful then maybe cam advancing changes power curve more, but i don't know.

Also i only had a D cam, so if camshaft was more let's say racier then maybe it effects something, i'm not sure.
