I'm glad it's working, but I would recommend properly powering the fuel pump. With FP and GND jumped, the fuel pump will run anytime key is on--which is what you want when driving, but possibly not what you want when sitting in the car with the motor off but key on (like if you're flashing stuff to the ECU), or if you were in an accident where the motor stalled and you were physically unable to turn the key off yourself.
The MS ECU will only run the fuel pump
*for a quick prime with key on
*in fuel pump test mode (MS2+)
Otherwise it will not run the pump if the ignition switch is on but the motor is not cranking/running.
A half degree of timing error shouldn't hurt anything at this point, especially if you've not started tuning and put some timing back in. Your CAS itself I'm sure adds more than a half degree of error.
A highly tuned, highly strung out motor might not like an extra .5 or 1° of timing, but I'd hope that you've not brought yours to that type of ragged edge.
