    Hey guys I recently noticed the deg(ign) on my Honda hack consistently staying at around a 25-32 under any sort of load. I’m not entirely familiar with how all of the engine retarding works or whatnot but I know it could be affected by a couple different factors so I’m going to include pictures of everything

    These pictures were taken seconds apart and as you can see the number jumps and stays at a high 20/low 30. Is there any reason for this? I have never noticed it before until today
    Thanks!!

    You're not under load in the photo. Ignition varies based on actual load, airflow, air pressure, temperatures, knock control, and other factors.

    Ignition timing probably isn't something worth monitoring, FWIW.

    Also, you're better off monitoring k.control over k.count. Knock count is useless on this platform. I would replace the k.count box with air-to-fuel ratio at least, it's better worth monitoring.

    When I monitor stuff, I look at IAT's, K. Control, ECT, MAP and fuel trims. I agree with fenix that timing isn't something you need to monitor closely.
