With AWD no need to ease into the boost at lower RPM. Looks like the sudden jump from +5 to +8 resulted in a timing drop. Try map 5 (+7PSI peak) and see how the car feels. +8 might be a bit much for pump gas.

Logs both boosts, afr, trims. Your timing is throwing me way off, I've never seen that much timing on a stock tune.....ever. There aren't really any large drops in timing but the numbers are shocking high. I guess if it's running good then have at it.

Seems to be running great. But should I be worried? What could cause high timing, and what should it be at? Maybe that’s why it pulls timing if I go much over stock RS boost? I bought the car used from a dodge dealer. Think there may have been a flash tune on it at some point and maybe the reflash didn’t take completely?

If it was flashed that would explain it. They add a bunch of timing after peak boost when it's ramping down. Typically timing is in the single digits until high rpm where you're in the low teens.

Is this something I need to worry about or take to a tuner? Any pros or cons to having that much timing?

Pros is more power at high rpm where the boost is much lower. Con is limited boost until you reach your knock threshold because someone bumped the timing. I would just keep an eye on it and if you're not pulling timing during a pull you're ok. And run good gas.

Thank you! I was getting worried lol. Also explains the very noticeable turbo lag. In late 2019 I test drove a 2020 red sport and didn’t notice any turbo lag or huge thrust. This car, I’ve always really felt it when the turbos really kick in. I thought that was because the 2020s needed software upgrade that the 18s didn’t. Guess now I know better lol
