Compare that to a 2.0L where I was running 15 degrees of advance on my stock turbo.
the low advance necessary to net you good torque shows the VE is high and the engine is breathing well. nice job!

as it's been getting cooler out i have dropped my advance at peak torque a bit, which is around 3500rpms. i now run about 12.5 degrees there, and immediately start ramping up with rpm. boost is 24.5psi and tapers to 20 at redline.
