    Default 6530 6AL-2 Programmable not retarding enough.

    So i have the 6AL-2 programmable box with the pro-billet distributor. I set my total timing at 38 degrees with a MSD timing tape. I verified it is the right size tape for my balancer. My run curve is setup to retard the max 25 degrees on start up. this SHOULD give me 13 degrees idle timing, but for some reason, it does not. timing light shows me 20 degrees at idle. so for some reason, the box is only retarding 18 degrees. ALSO, I cannot have my PC hooked up to view the gauges at the same time the engine is running to view the amount of retard. for some reason, having the pc connected freaks out the box and it like dumps its timing curve or something and the motor runs like you way over advanced or retarded the timing and runs on like 4 and half cylinders. runs fine without pc connected.

    It is a lot of info i know but this has been a trip and a half to try and figure out these gremlins.

    Nothing at all? MSD Techs?
