Pinching is not the same as disconnecting and leaving open to atmosphere. Your reading may not be accurate. Could be your measuring device also.
Your recent $20K plus lesson would suggest to a thoughtful person that a different magnitude of importance be assigned relative to extremely accurate ignition timing values. Lacking the knowledge of simple rotor gear re-indexing (if that's the case) is telling of an ongoing deficit of comprehensive understanding of rudimentary elements, let alone the operating principles of boosted engines with mechanical ignition devices. Not to mention the appreciation of the risks associated with/consequences of settings even slightly out of a narrow range of tolerance. Given the risks, perhaps the adjustment or verification is best left to professionals, or parties that are germane, unless you enjoy russian roulette or want to disregard whatever warranty that may have been offered.
