Every setup has its "sweet" spots. There are so many different cams, turbos, exhaust systems, A/F ratios, variables in general. The timing and CO affect the spool down noise you hear from the turbo when the ignition is shut off. For a "mild" engine the spool down noise goes away when the tuning is dialed in. That has nothing to do with the delayed fuel cutoff of the 930 pumps that can cause the chug to a stop phenomenon, separate issue.
I typically set the timing at 26* initially. Once the CO is set at 3% you can wiggle the timing a bit to find that "sweet spot" where it all comes together nice and does not detonate nomatter what the temperature is or grade of fuel used. Others may chime in with a different method.
