Don't let column 1 (30*) throw you off. I use that to keep the low speed drivability good (when rpms drop towards 600 and throttle is light, more timing kicks in making it less likely to stall). Normally it idles around 1000 rpm and I see about 10*-12* of advance. At around 4000 rpm if I am just cruising (light throttle), I see around 19* advance. At 4000 rpm if I stab the throttle, for the second that the turbo starts to spin up (no real boost) the timing jumps to 35* (row 5 and column 6). Once the boost comes on (row 6 and above) the timing drops back to the 20s and the teens.
