I did some logs this morning, whats the best way to put them online so someone can look at it?

I did a couple 3000 rpm third gear runs, its a lot harder than i thought to drive and try to log all by myself. My question to someone is whats the btdc timing curve supposed to be like, the max and the minumum? I got my timing pull to basically 3 and under I wanna start raising my boost, and suggestions?

To start raising boost you either want to run higher octane or retard your timing a bit until you find a safe sweetspot...

Right im trying to determine what this safe sweet spot is, its hardly pulling timing. The maximum I saw was 4 degrees pull, so I should get rid of that before I crank up the boost 2 more psi? Also the range on vag com said that btdc should be 6-12 Degrees if this is correct, im way too high. If someone nows what the BTDC should be around please respond

When you post up the picture it is best to use the actual picture then using the thumbnail picture.


You can add more timing or just leave the timing where it is and add more boost. You want to see something other then zero readings but not have the highest reading over 6-8. Doing just a 1 gear pull isn't really going to help you set your boost/timing, because once you start running thru more gears the IAT's are going to increase which means your CF readings might also get much higher.

The 6-12 BTDC doesn't really mean anything to you at this point.

keep it under 6 deg, and 20 psi if you want "safe".

i run 8 degrees of timing and 24 psi of boost, but i have meth

Thanks for the input, btw that was a third gear pull, 11 psi, and it was less than 18 degrees outside when i did that run. Ill turn the boost up a couple pounds and do some more logs.
