Default Ditching blue box for the hack NEED HELP

I''m buying the greddy sohc turbo kit mfor my 93 ex motor. I've searched around and EVERYONE says the blue box sux donkey nuts and I sjould at least dich it for the hack. So ibought a vafc and I'm gong to retard my timing aprox 3 deg. My wuestion is if i retard the timing will my car run like ---- at idle and normal under full boost? I saw a thread somewhere where someone had a msd box that controlls the boost a certain levels. Does anyone have any info about this item?

any help would be greatly appreciated.

the MSD item is called a BTM. basically its retards yours timing x amount of degrees per psi of boost.. you can control "x" via a ****. .5deg / psi .75, 1.0 etc,..

You would need a device that would retard timing for you. A BTM, if you were not going to mod your ECU.

..but Anything below 6psi is said to not need timing retard. Information from Dave Blundell. And if you do retard, then, then a "step" retard is said to be the premier method to gain the most power, however a linear retard is safest.

Choose whichever, or none. On 6psi, it won't matter all that much.
