This is completely true.

Without correct tools , it is impossible to make correct diagnosis and to have correct conclusion.

As it is impossible to keep an eye on it while driving , I would even add a datalloger with these 2 gauges in order to make records for correct analysis and comparison.

That beeing said, when the turbo start to spool, a too low ignition advance combined with too much fuel can lead near to engine stalling.
