Spark table: closed loop x open loop

Hi,

I have the SCT PRP, just did some modifications on the spark table.
The spark table is the same for closed loop and open loop??

There is far more to how the timing works then just the borderline tables it would be best if you sent me your tune file and I can see whats happening , keep in mind just because you have say 26 deg timing at 4600rpm and .800 load does not mean thats the timing your engine will be getting

Tom, email sent to you.

What could happen to the engine with an agressive timing? Fried pistons?

Yes you could burn a piston , knock out the rod bearings etc
