I was using a boost activated retard on my test Buell,  until I got the
water injection
sorted out,....now I find the need to tune all over again with less
retard giving more
overall performance.  Will let everyone know how it ultimately turns out.
 I need to 
verify max advance at different boost setting before conclusions,...and
this cold
weather makes it tough.
   I think what boost, static compression, fuel, and chamber design have
a LOT to
do with it.  The big twin is certainly more prone to detonate than more
engines,...so I don't know how relevant my results are.
