Yes I had -1 degree for every PSIA over 15. Would retard so far engine would bog.

Took all retarding out of cells. Car took off and boosted fine.

" Yes you had it -1 degree for every psi over 15 psi? "

You're telling me until 15 psi you're running 30 degrees of (final) timing?

Ah absolute psi, never heard of that term but cool. Well 10 degrees vs stock puts u at 20 degrees at 10 psi. Most people run about 16-17. Anyways u cant be driving with no timing control so figure that out.

Wait so now you're running a boosted VVT motor on factory timing maps?

Well technically he is right. For some the learning process is more expensive than for others.

42 should be ok for 1-2 psi. Probably will get blowout at over 5 psi though.
