I thought that with new chains it would be set at 0?

that depends if the TDC mark on the crank pully is in the right spot.
most of the time it's not, so first thing is to find the right TDC and make adjustments from there

advancing the cam, helps lower the power band on a cam - my big Alted cam, didn't kick in til nearly 3,100RPM, advancing it 2° brought it down a few hundred RPM.

But of course with a big lift cam you can run into clearance troubles advancing/retarding to far.
