That's low timing for 93 octane and that low of boost. Are you getting knock and what is the AFR at WOT for the entire run? Given the low static compression of the LSA and assuming you're running a...

Where in MN are you? As mentioned above; if you switch between the sport and tour mode in a steady state driving you can feel the car oscillate very quickly up and down before settling into the mode.
