In theory you are correct Phil. But only In theory. I honestly think you need to remap this system for fun to see what you can produce.

Advancing the intake cam under high boost just blows it out the exhaust so Iím not sure I understand how that would help in a boosted application unless you could retard the exhaust cam. But hey I donít claim know or have tested everything
The target is one thing but what itís actually doing with duty cycle and the resulting cam advance is another. From some of the logging I did a couple years ago the OEM ECU was holding the AVCS on too long reducing peak power. Also keep in mind the systems are run in closed loop and often stray from the actual target.
