Default Is your ignition tuned?

Just curious to know how many people on here have actually tuned their ignition? And how many people are just running ignition retard under boost (i.e. .75 degree's per psi)

If you haven't tuned your ignition, how long have you been running your car without proper ignition tuning, has it caused any problems?

I'm quite curious to know how many people have had their cars dyno tuned.

pretty sure not alot of people are getting on the dyno just to tune their ignition, unless they are running a butt load of boost

I just set it at .9 degrees per psi, just to be safe. I wouldnt know how to tune ignition anyway, do you just advance until you get a hind of det, then back off a little or what?

You get your car on the dyno and tune each cells ignition value for maximum torque. The dyno holds your car at a certain engine rpm so you can use the throttle to move between cells in each column (feel free to correct me if i'm wrong, i'm just learning as i go along).
