75 is possible with a wet kit but thats a lot more than you think. I would suggest you start with a smaller shot and work your way up. Realize its not just the motor,its the bang on the trans and clutch to. By the way, a 75 jet doesnt mean thats exactly what it will gain. We put a 150 shot on a mustang and it gained almost 185hp. jets are cheap. engines arent

Yes I understand that jets are not exact which is why I went with the zex kit it is well known that the jet produce less than that they say cause it measured by the fly wheel a 75 shot is getting from what I have found with a zex kit between 55-65

I ran a ZEX Wet 75 shot for an entire Summer on stock clutch with no problems. Just make sure you don't spray at too low of an rpm, or beyond redline(fuel cut). I used an MSD window switch with mine to prevent that from happening.

You can spray under 6000rpms. I wouldn't spray below 4000 though. I have always had mine set to 4000-4500rpms and I've never had a problem.

As for pulling timing on a 50-75shot, stock timing is fine. AFR's should be ok as long the proper jets are used and the fuel system is in good working order.
