What actually happens it you run too low timing especially in cruise zone, the EGT's will skyrocket. Car will cruise but plays hell on the valves and turbo. Inconel which the impeller shaft and wheel are made out of starts to melt at 1600 F. Anti lag retards the timing specifically to simulate load. But to purposely retard timing on your base map does more harm than good. Adjusting your map to an aggressive timing curve on the other hand will help spool up the motor, and add responsiveness.
Oh yeah, I think I'm around 45 degrees in places pre boost.
