I'm confused. When you say bogging down what exactly do you mean? I suspect you don't understand how the advance system works.
At idle, the advance is a certain value. This is determined by the initial advance value plus the applied vacuum. As RPM is slowly increased, the advance will increase due to centrifugal advance up to some certain maximum value. However, if, at a certain steady RPM, say 2000, and you then stab the gas, the vacuum advance RETARDS the timing to prevent pinging. Then as the situation stabilizes the advance returns to whatever value is appropriate for the engine RPM. This will NOT be the same as the Idle value.
I don't see your problem as being helped by increasing the advance. You should use a timing light and adjust initial advance with the distributor without the vacuum connected. Be sure to plug the vacuum line. Then attach the vacuum line to the distributor. Then stab the gas and you should see the timing retard momentarily then advance to a new value. If you increase the gas slowly, you see the timing advance with RPM as determined mostly by the centrifugal advance weights.
