91 is perfectly fine, not ideal, but it works fine stock or if tuned for it.

There are also some instances of some fairly substantial knock events (the -6 and -5). More concerning is that your DAM started off at 0.75 which means you either had just flashed the map or your ECU has been experiencing knock consistantly and has lowered this value to reduce timing and boost in order to protect your engine.
I agree. And those knocks were in boost and at high load, so they're legit knock, not the false knock that everybody gets when cruising at low loads from time to time.

18 degrees of timing at 2.5 g/rev and 5600 RPM is pretty high, I think the tune probably needs to be mellowed out.
