    I'd say its Tip In Retard. I had a look at the log where it goes into pre-ignition spark source. I've never seen that before. Are your ignition timing tables std?
    I've had a play around with the same sort of combo years ago. To be honest the factory timing tables are pretty good for a BA NA.
    The only thing I would recommend is to enable the Octane option in the VID block if it isn't already done - this should add +4 deg timing. Look at VID Octane adjust table.
    These engines don't need a lot of timing - the combustion chamber is very efficient. Its not an old small block chev that needs 36deg timing+
