The duty cycle is a MegaTune glitch on MS1 - it's not really happening.

Looks like you bounced it off the overboost protection there. You want to set the overboost protection well past the point you're actually boosting to - it's a "ZOMG SHUT OFF THE ENGINE NOW!!! TOO MUCH BOOSTS!!!" sort of setting.

Ya I know what you mean so I already tried raising the boost cut for testing however have a look at the max boost in the log when it happened and then compare to my over boost setting which is set higher. (17.9psi). What is going on?

You're at 15.7 psi boost relative to your barometric pressure reading. A tiny bit of noise can trigger the cut even if the noise pulse isn't fast enough to show up in the log. Raise the overboost threshold.

If it was a overboost trigger why didn't it pull spark as well? I have mine setup to pull fuel and spark.

Only the fuel cut shows up in the data log; the spark cut isn't as easy to find.
