the key is your metric to judge avcs efficacy would be engine load.
I've found that you can make great power on STi's with very little timing advance. On a stock turbo, after remapping AVCS, with only 10-11 degrees of advance at peak torque I was able to make nice power.
Compare that to a 2.0L where I was running 15 degrees of advance on my stock turbo.
