just like seth said, when i was at school learning how to do this stuff that question was brought up numerous times and the instructor said the same, you could have this crazy algorithm of logic that proves a powerful timing mark but the next guy came in and his intercooler coupler it 1/4 inch longer and there is a funky barb in his manifold changing the air flow characteristic and then your algorithm is junk on that set up.....
