Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become ignorant.

Hey ok I got some timing questions. My car is na, with a 1.9 block and a 1.6 head.
Supposedly they have wicked hi compression or so I have heard,like its north of 25:1
I'm runnin my timing near the turbo spec, around .96.
Well it sounds like major popcorn at part throttle.
Does anyone else have this combo with this problem?
Maybe I should try na timing?
I have to dump in about a can of the silver power services Cetane boost and a gallon of motor oil to get it to calm down on like 1/2 or 3/4 of a tank.
If the hi compression idea is true then it seems like its similar to an old hi compression muscle car running new crappy gas and I haveta take some timing out possibly. 
Throttle cables ftw

So the thicker fuel.. makes it quieter and less poppy? Weird, usually with the thicker fuel the timing can be less as it pushes the pump pressure (thus timing) up.

Try changing it around and see what works best for you.

I think you are probably one of the only ones (I am kidding) with a 1.9 block and 1.6 head, not very common.
