Personally i'd like to see my boost curve hug the boost control set point a little better. Looking at your graph and seeing that the boost struggles to get there mid pull and barely touches means its a little high. Generally you want to get to that point asap and hug it all the way across the pull. @ about 5K you can see the turbo just runs out of steam and starts decreasing...

I would set the boost control set point closer to 14psi for now and see if your ignition increases a little towards to the 10 mark.
so your thought is by decreasing the autotune boost to 14, the actual boost would get there quicker and stay longer...thus the 'area under the curve' would be greater than what I have now.

What are the advantages of increased ignition?
