that map is pretty conservative on the timing so if u run a similar sized turbo you should be good till you get a real tune

You're fucked.

Didn't BBKA have his dizzy retarded so the map is actually more advanced when you're at base 16, Pete?

Several months ago when I asked BBKA for a copy of the bin, he said I should retard the timing in the lost two boost column by about 2 degrees. He did not say why, and I did not ask him.

Reduce the timing and you should be OK for .5 bar until you can get it tuned. Don't go blasting down the road thinking that because you are running less boost than BBKA everything is fine. Regardless of the fact you have a similar turbo/set-up, you MUST get your car tuned.

or thow a wideband on and just check the a/f's. That is the best solution to your question. Just make sure the a/f stay within high 11's to 12:5:1 and you are good to go until you get it really tuned. The only realy way to tell if it will work ok for you in any amount of boost. Sure as hell would do it if it was my motor. The $300 on a wb could simply save your motor, and will give you a better understanding on all of this "tuning". Good lcuk!

his a/f ratio has nothing to do with how much timing is in the ignition map, which can be much worse than a slightly lean mixture.
