The problem with just changing advance around in the map is that doing so changes the amount of air going into the engine and the dynamic compression. Fuel and timing must then be adjusted to find the correct settings for that angle of advance.
judging by clark's comments, it seems the key to really unlocking avcs would be to:
1) run conservative timing and afrs
2) set boost map
3) adjust avcs map to maximize maf across the board
4) revisit boost map as needed
5) revisit fuel map
6) revisit timing map
the key is your metric to judge avcs efficacy would be engine load.
