      It's possible he had a lap belt only, and slid out from under it.

      His feet were out the window one full roll before it stopped. Amazing the car
      didn't crush em.

      strong correlation with coolant temp for short runs like this, other than perhaps how
      quickly it recovers after hard...

      Think you misunderstood my intent. I'm saying, in my opinion, the logs indicate a problem.

      All that being true, we are only talking 0.44 bar of boost and the tuning should
      be handling things on the street with a a fair margin. There are plenty of places where 93 octane is not available...

      There's nothing wrong with your logs. As I said earlier, 3-5 degrees of pull or less is generally considered normal.
      Timing pull is normally a result of knock (detonation), which can occur if...

      That looks like a lot of timing pull, and it's not always when it's particularly hot.
      Look down at the pulls at line 2869 and 2905 with temps in the low/mid 80's.
      This is an engine that rarely...

      The block 31 values are as a ratio relative to stoic (14.7:1) so
      1.0 = 14.7:1
      1.1 = 16.17:1
      0.9 = 13.23:1
      0.748 = 11.0:1
      and so forth. Really easy to convert in a spreadsheet.
      One of the...

      DTM kit uses an electronic boost controller (unlike most of their previous FT kits),
      so it should make exactly however much boost it's set to.

      You mentioned this before. Rough intermittent idle combined with temporary "loss of vacuum", is just the SAI pump cycling on for a few seconds.
