Utec timing question. I read on WRXhackers some guy said that your Utec fixed timing values should be within 5 degrees of the stock ecu is that correct?

And what if my fixed values are lower than what the stock ecu wants to do should I increase them?

Hoopla, never heard of that.

Well, if you increase them, you might be messing with stuff you don't want to mess with. The ECU might want advance timing and gobs of fuel, yours might be working better depending on where it is in the map for less timing and less fuel.

Um... I took a log at lunch.... here's utec timing - ecu timing

Pegdrgr or wrxhackers.

Oh, if the person who said that was hippy78, ignore him. Sometimes he says smart things, sometimes stupid things.

'Twere I you, I'd just ask. Nathan is getting into a lot of posts over there now helping everyone with their tuning.

I would've ignored it but I saw Nathan posting in the same thread and figured if it was incorrect he'd call him out on it.

I just got off the fone with Nathan and he said that's totally not true. :)
