I used one when I went to tech school (UTI) and it was part of a turbo kit for a civic. Long and the short- for that instance we used 3 degrees per pound of boost because it was a relatively high compression motor.
Great! That clarifies much of the story. But...does anyone know where the timing should be on boost? Does the timing stay the same on boost from 3000-6500 rpm's?
