Default is the mk1 1.8 miata knock limited?

trying to find out if the miata is knock limited or if i can safely reach MBT under forced induction i have a link to explain.

trying to find this out now as it will determine if i can tune with megasquirt myself in which case i tune till it starts to knock then back it off or if mbt (Minimum ignition advance for Best Torque) can be reached without knocking then i will need a rolling road/dyno.

Without WI you're not going to hit MTBT with FI.

I've never managed on either engine anyway....
