So I'm going through various settings in Crome trying to build a tune and not blow up another engine. I'm at work and don't have access to my previous tune to post pictures but I felt it was a relatively conservative tune to start with. I didn't have a knock sensor at the time and of course I experienced detonation and blew the ring lands on all the pistons. Huh...
So I come across the Base Ignition Table settings under Advanced Settings and I feel extremely stupid for overlooking it. Is this real? Is the entire ignition map being advanced based on RPM? Why in the hell would I want to do that? I spent time retarding timing under various boost pressures and IAT only to have this be a variable? Also, why would I want to advance timing based solely on RPM? I need some insight on this table because from my perspective, this seems completely stupid to simply advance timing wildly like this based solely on RPM. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
