I'm down to running map 2 type values on winter gas. I guess the year round tune thing isn't for me. I may stay additive but will retune on summer gas either way.

actually looks pretty good. I'd run a few more logs to see if they look the same and if I could increase 4k another .5 psi to flatten the boost curve if still a little valley. The issue is that if you pick up some timing pull early, your overall advance may also go down. You could also try bumping the bottom to 2-3-3.5 . That last bit will do little but won't hurt either if clean. I personally don't have issue with the little cylinder pull you currently have because your overall advance is quite good. 1.8 runs more advance to start with and George says up to -3 per cylinder is OK but you still need your overall advance to look right and yours does. Probably feels pretty strong and smooth right now. If you're not racing or hot rodding all the time, it looks fine and may be even if you were. That said, if I was constantly on it, more margin might be preferred. Do this again in May when summer gas has returned and see if you can run a bit more.

Make 3500 to 4500 = 5.

Make 5000 =4.3

I wouldn't bother reving your current setup over 6000.

I don’t race, just bringing some new life to a five year old car. If it’s safe to use these Map 6 settings for daily driving I will. Otherwise, I could use Map 2 daily and 6 for fun.

Try 3500 to 4500 set to 4. Try pushing 5500 and 6000 to 6.

Do you see what happened with the changes? The boost curve filled out, but the car also applied knock correction. It looks like we are reaching the limit of what you can do down low with the fuel you use. We're going to explore further up in the RPM band now.

Alright, here are three logs of these settings.

I think that looks pretty good. I'd stop there on the fuel you have now. How does it feel?

Or.. you can push 6000 and 6500 to 7. :)
Feels good, thanks for the help. I have come this far, might as well try 7. Should I leave 7000 at 4, like this?

I see no reason why you should be reving your car to 7000, so yes, keep it at 4.
