    ABS can warp like gangbusters during print depending on shape. I made a...

    The return fuel line is noisy - there are some in-line fittings and a 90 degree bend that add to the noise. Mine is almost as noisy at 44psi primary if I turn on the fuel pump.

    4deg sounds really late. I'd expect that it would be lumpy - does the timing light agree w/ the software?

    I only ask because I found a much more stable idle at 19deg timing. MAP dropped a few...

    I would probably look to run a single boost control solenoid, to lower cost and reduce points of failure.

    Do you have any other modern electronics, like a USB phone charger for example?

    Some of these things have such poor noise control they can reduce your ability to receive radio considerably.
